There is some follow through to final hard red winter wheat yields as well. In index years below your spring index of 600, harvest acre yields, on a percent of trend line basis, were on average 12% below the "good" years (90.0% of trend). The planted acre yields were 21% behind (83.5% of trend). So not only is final bushels per acre lost, there is a loss in harvested acres. Freeport, IL
