LINCOLN, Neb. — In recent years, producers in the Corn Belt have experienced extremes in weather and crop yields.
Following the devastating 2012 drought, corn yields were the worst in 30 years. Two years later, yields reached all-time record highs.
Facing such variability, corn producers and agribusinesses have looked to the Yield Forecast Center developed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for corn yield predictions to help guide in-season decision making.
