AccuWeather predicts the 2019 U.S. yield for corn will be the lowest since 2012. A new AccuWeather analysis estimates there will be just over 13 billion bushels of corn, based on 167 bushels per acre on 78 million acres harvested. Continued rain and flooding so far have marred the 2019 growing season, with many farmers forced to plant corn far later than usual. That has also affected initial estimates of the condition of the corn, with historically low estimates of “good” or “excellent” the last three weeks of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Crop Progress.
