Projections of corn crop yields are still too high, according to a report from AccuWeather's Alex Sosnowski. The Accu crew expects a fall yield of 138 bushels/acre, lower than the latest USDA projection based on its forecast of ongoing heat and drought conditions. "Eventually, these costs will be passed along to the consumer in the form of higher food prices." (earlier)

    Bet on this. The August corn yield projections will be much less than what USDA is forecasting. Thats based on my personal observations in the corn belt.
