WEATHERYIELD

WeatherYield is the only tool that forecasts grain supply according to your own territory, rather than county boundaries.

Knowing supply means knowing your market position.

 

WeatherYield provides a window into supply, showing grain handlers areas of over/under supply before they occur. This allows you to reliably adjust your bid structure throughout the season, which can dramatically increase confidence in your market positioning. WeatherYield also empowers you to make timely decisions on bunker and emergency space, schedule labor more efficiently, and optimize fleet positioning and deployment.

The WeatherYield crop forecast is based on our proprietary 1.3B samples of yield, carefully collected across millions of acres and 26 states – as well as 20 years of detailed weather matched to the sample locations. These proprietary samples allow WeatherYield to offer forecasts unconstrained by county boundaries.

Custom reports show hyper-local forecasts for corn and beans, revealing areas of over/under supply.
