DTN and Gro Intelligence, which have partnered on the fiŌh annual Digital Yield Tour, released 2022 projections on
Monday for corn and soybean production across the entire United States.
The national average for corn yield is projected to be 167.2 bushels per acre. Soybeans are expected to yield 48.9
bushels per acre nationally.
Corn and soybean yield estimates are based on Gro Intelligence’s real-time forecasting models combined with on-the-ground assessments from farmers gathered by DTN’s team of editors. The national estimates reflect weather
conditions that have varied widely in key U.S. farming regions in 2022. In some parts of the country, farmers
delayed planting because of a cold, wet spring only to experience little rain and scorching temperatures once crops
were in the ground. Some states, however, have had a much more favorable environment for growing corn and
soybeans this year.
Gro Intelligence updates its models daily, meaning yield projections could improve if weather conditions cooperate
for the balance of the growing season.
Unlike traditional crop tours, which pull random samples from fields, Gro Intelligence encompasses data from every
county in the Corn Belt and relies on more than simple averages and statistical extrapolations to generate
