Pro Farmer Crop Tour Next Week


Pro Farmer scouts will fan out across the Corn Belt to measure this year’s corn and soybean yield potential during the 29th annual Pro Farmer Crop Tour next week, August 15-19.  The tour is an August ritual covering seven Midwestern states and capturing the attention of the industry and national media.

Observations and results will be shared nightly at in-person events and live-streamed online. Pro Farmer Editor and Eastern Tour Director Brian Grete says, “Crop tour will give us a first-hand look at whether the good areas are enough to compensate for the poorer locations.”

The event is the most thorough and most followed inspection of yield potential during a critical time in the growing season. A summary of findings from the tour will be presented nightly at 7 p.m. central time, through a live-streamed broadcast hosted by Clinton Griffiths, Tyne Morgan, Chip Flory and Brian Grete. Free registration is required and available at
