You may follow the progress of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour August 22-25 on WILLAg.org. Watch for live in field results from the tour scouts as they gather information from corn and soybean field across the Midwest. The updates will come directly from a series of crop scouts. Monday through Thursday we'll also bring you audio updates from Pro Farmer's Brian Grete and Chip Flory. Those updates will air during the 2:06-2:36pm Closing Market Report. Friday Brian Grete will join the Commodity Week panel to review the tour results, Pro Farmer's official estimation of the 2016 crop, and compare those to USDA's August report. You may learn more about the tour on the Pro Farmer website.
