Importance of sky conditions on the record 2004 Midwestern crop yields

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Weather during the 2004 growing season in the Midwest produced exceptionally high yields of all crops with resulting record yields that were 10% to 25% above prior records, an exceptional increase. The inability to assess the magnitude of the 2004 crop yields resulted from a lack of information regarding the presence and effect of the numerous days with sunny skies in 2004. These results suggest that in the future, sky conditions measured during the growing season need to be incorporated in assessments of potential final crop yields
