Illinois Was Top 2021 Soybean State
USAgNet - 01/18/2022

Illinois produced more soybeans than any other state once again in 2021.

Despite challenges with rain that prolonged harvest for many of the state's farmers, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates Illinois soybean farmers raised 672.6 million bushels on 10.51 million harvested acres with an average yield of 64 bushels per acre, up 4 bushels from 2020.

“Even with the challenges presented by supply chain delays and interruptions, the economy and the weather, Illinois soybean farmers were able to do what they do best: produce a high-quality product abundantly and efficiently,” says Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) Chairman and soybean farmer Steve Pitstick.

“Illinois farmers have gotten really good at making the best of whatever growing challenges confront them, making smart management decisions, and maximizing production opportunities.”

Pitstick also attributes Illinois’ solid production year and consistently profitable growing seasons to ISA’s checkoff-funded research and educational opportunities delivered to Illinois farmers.

Through data-informed publications, farmer-facing events, and other resources, ISA provides year-round, actionable agronomic advice from crop advisors across the state.
