If conditions hold, University of Minnesota Grain Marketing Specialist Ed Usset said the state could have an average corn yield in the mid-180s, with an outside chance of an average over 190. Usset and University of Minnesota Climatologist and Meteorologist Mark Seeley spoke on weather and grain marketing Aug. 6 at Farmfest.
Those with any corn sitting in a bin to sell should take advantage of any rally in the market now.
"If you've got grain, you've got to put a number on it," Usset said. "You're in a very defensive position if you've got grain left. Sometimes marketing decisions are about minimizing losses."
