USAgNet - 01/24/2023

When it comes to soybean production, no other state grew more than Illinois in 2022, the Illinois Soybean Association recently announced.

The ISA said that estimates from the National Agricultural Statistics Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture are that Illinois soybean farmers raised over 677 million bushels of soybeans on 10.75 million harvested acres, an average yield of 63 bushels per acre.

This was in spite of a planting season affected by a cool, wet weather that was followed by a hot, dry summer.
