In 2018 Illinois state average I believe was around 210 for corn and 70 for beans. I farm in Douglas county which had the #1 county corn yield in the state and #2 in the country of 248. We were #3 in the state for county average bean yields of 80. This year Douglas county will MAYBE average somewhere around 180-190 and around 60-65 for beans.(this is a rough guess, lots of growing season left) Anyway, with those yields, that puts us between 20-25% below last year. I know that Southern IL and NE IL are in rough shape also, can’t speak for yields though. Indiana and Ohio I believe are in worst shape than IL. Heres my question for those smarter than me and who can do some math. If the US had a 176.4 last year, what will it have this year with IL at 180, IN and Ohio both 20% off last year and the rest of the US kept the SAME as last year?
First nobody knows nothing about how things are going to end up @ this stage, but highly doubt that IL, In and Oh are the only states that yield less than last year. I am in a pretty good spot this year in ILL, would be happy if corn was 80% of last year.
