Mid-Atlantic Corn and Soybean Yields Show Great Variability in Response to Precipitation during Critical Growth Stages
- Cavigelli, Michel
- The mid-Atlantic coastal plain, where the FSP
is located, has higher than average variability
in corn and soybean yields compared to the
most productive agricultural regions in the US.
Precipitation is the primary driver of crop yield
variability in this region and drought is often
responsible for low yields.
