The latest AccuWeather 2019 crop production analysis predicts a significant decline from last year’s corn and soybean yield, as well as a noticeable variation from the July U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates.
AccuWeather analysts predict the 2019 corn yield will be 13.07 billon bushels, a decline of a 9.3% from 2018 and 5.8% lower than the latest USDA figures. It would be the lowest yield since 2012, a year of a significant drought that saw final corn production numbers plummet to 10.76 billion bushels.
AccuWeather analysts are also concerned that late-planted corn either won’t yield well or could be affected more so this year by on-time frost.
As for the projected soybean yield, 3.9 billion bushels reflects an even greater decline from 2018’s final soybean production numbers. It would be a 14.1% drop-off from the final figure of 4.54 billion bushels and the lowest yield since 2013 (3.36 billion bushels).
