What is driving corn and bean yields?

posted on
In the September USDA report, corn and bean yields increased substantially on a updated yield data in 10 corn and 11 soybean growing states that make up just over 83% of production for each.

For corn, it was higher ear counts and slightly higher derived ear weights. Over in the beans, lower than usual pod counts were offset by the highest derived pod weights on recent record. We can assume the dry July weather might have hurt pod development but the heavy rains in August more than offset yield potential.
