Thanks, Bryce. Great explanation of what this all means.

Bryce, thanks for this perspective on the El Nino weather pattern, and the objective likelihood of specific weather patterns occurring as a result. Sounds like we still need to patiently wait for more info before drawing a conclusion on El Nino development.

Thanks Bryce, You answered my El Nino question from Thursday. But moving on; with indicators pointing to possible (probable El Nino) does that raise the odds that we won't have any LaNina affects for the corn belt. Or also, what are the odds of a good corn belt growing season if it all stays neutral (aka La Nada) .

Thanks for reading and for the comments. Regarding Mark's question on La Nina--La Nina development chances are no higher than 20 percent this season. This is promising for Corn Belt production, because there is a high correlation between La Nina (cool equator Pacific water) and below-trendline U.S. corn yields. If the Pacific stays neutral all season, it certainly gives the Corn Belt a decent chance for a good growing season--but it still might be a challenge to get corn yields to the 165 Bu/A that USDA is projecting.
