first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest To get a preview of what to expect this harvest season, the Ohio Ag Net and Ohio’s Country Journal team will once again go on the I-75/I-71 Ohio Crop Tour presented by AgroLiquid Fertilizers. On the tour, two teams of farmers, agronomists and OCJ/OAN staff will be crisscrossing I-75 and I-71 reporting crop conditions and yield estimates on August 15 and 16. The teams start in the north and meet at the end in Clinton County. Over the two days, each team will sample a representative corn and soybean field in more than 20 counties (for a total of more than 40 counties over the two days).The groups will be estimating yields and overall conditions for corn fields and the conditions and yield potential of soybean fields. We will be updating the results on the go online at ocj.com, so check back regularly on our progress. Coverage will also include photos, videos and radio broadcasts of tour highlights. The results will be posted in the September issue of Ohio’s Country Journal as well. I-75 Team Includes:Harold Watters, Ohio State University Extension agronomistDan Uetrecht, Warren County farmerZach Profit, Van Wert County farmerBill McDonald, Seed Consultants, Inc. agronomistMatt Reese, Ohio’s Country Journal I-71 Team Includes:Glenn Harsh, Delaware County farmerAustin Heil, Hardin County farmerBrett Barton, Holmes County farmerBart Johnson, Ohio’s Country Journal, Delaware County farmerTy Higgins, Ohio Ag Netlast_img
