Abstract: Economic benefits can accrue from more timely crop forecasts. An econometric corn yield response model for Indiana, that can generate more frequent forecasts, was specified and estimated. The model's yield forecasting capability was comparable, and in some cases superior, to that of the U.S. Statistical Reporting Service.
