Ohio producers reported slightly higher corn yield expectations than they did last month, according to Cheryl Turner, state statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. The November Crop Production Report is based on conditions as of November 1, 2019. Some highlights of the report are as follows:

Total production is expected to be 422 million bushels, down 32 percent from 2018. Corn harvest progress was lagging the 5-year average in Ohio by a large margin. Growers were hampered by poor harvesting conditions and a very immature crop.
