OMAHA (DTN) -- A veteran scout on the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour thinks this year's corn production forecast could be too good to be true.

"I'm not saying it won't be true, but I'm waiting to experience it firsthand before I buy into it," Fredericksburg, Iowa, farmer Kyle Wendland said.

USDA forecast a record 14 billion bushel corn crop with an average yield of 167.4 bushels per acre in its August Crop Production report. Corn acres may be down from last year, but USDA's counting on a record ear population to bring its forecasts to reality.
