Crop Tour Day 3: Illinois Corn and Soybeans Yields Take a Nosedive



When Pro Farmer Crop Scouts made their way through Illinois, it was a sin sight. The state that normally boasts binbusting crops falls short – and by a considerable margin.

Compared to last year's Pro Farmer estimates, Illinois corn fell 21.46 bu. per acre – or 11% – lower in 2018. Soybeans did not fare better with 331.23 pods less per 3×3 square – or about 25% – under last year's estimate. Both fell below the Pro Farmer average of three years.

Illinois corn yield decreased to 171.17 bu. per acre and soybean belts per 3×3 deteriorated to just 997.68.

"The Illinois crop was under par," said Brian Grete, leader of the Eastern Pro Farmer Crop Tour. “It just wasn't there. Too much variation in crops in fields and fields to fields. It is difficult to build a lot of returns with variety. The eastern side of the state is worse than the western side of the state. ”

The northwest part of the state, north of I-80, really struggled to get planted this year and scouts say it was evident in their samples. Although the crops may look good from the field, they were full of hops and plants without ears ̵

1; by-products of planting under less than ideal conditions, Grete adds.

"[Corn] bushels break down to 11.1% lower than last year on tour," says Grete. "There are some really bad areas out there, it's everywhere."

Now the big question for grain is whether it will realize its full potential – or will it lose even more? In the previously planted acres Grete is sure, it's the later planted acres that are the big question.

When it comes to soybeans, Illinois is only the third in a line of disappointing yields on the east side of the crop tour. All three trials so far, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, have not destroyed more than 1,000 pods per 3×3 square.

Tour scouts took 399 samples between the two crops to calculate their estimates.

    • District 2: 8 samples
    • District 3: 25 samples
    • District 4: 51 samples

    • District 6: 15 samples
    • District 7: 11 samples

The preliminary Iowa corn yields are similar to 2018, while soybeans per 3×3 square fall just below last year's Pro Farmer estimates. Today's calculations come from three districts, remember to check in again tomorrow night at 8pm. central time for the state's final results.

  • Corn
    • District 1: 66 samples
    • District 4: 63 samples
    • District 7: 35 samples
