Welcome to #DigitalYieldTour19, powered by Gro Intelligence.

Join us as we digitally tour key production areas, as well as locations that have faced considerable weather woes. Find out how yield has fared with this season’s late, wet start for many, followed by drought and flooding for some.


During the tour, we’ll assess yield using Gro’s latest model technology. DTN’s award-winning editorial staff will discuss state-by-state averages and historical yields, plus weather challenges and pest pressures. At the end of our tour, you’ll receive a national overview, complete with a market outlook.
