[March 01, 2010]  The USDA Crop Reporting Service just released soybean yields by county on Friday. The state average yield was 46 bushels per acre. Logan County averaged 51, Sangamon 53, DeWitt 55, Macon 55, Mason 46, Tazewell 53 and McLean 54.

HardwareThe top counties in the state were Champaign and Piatt with a 56-bushel yield. Following them were several counties with 55-bushel yields: Carroll, DeWitt, Macon, Vermillion, Christian, Douglas and Moultrie.

The top producing county for total production remained McLean County with 13,041,000 bushels of production, closely followed by Livingston County with 12,954,000 bushels.

The Logan County yield was one bushel better than the 50 average established last year but well off the 2004 record of 56 bushels per acre.

Information on soybeans yields in all counties is available on the Logan County Extension Web site at
or from the source files at the National Ag Statistics Service at

Corn yields will not be released for another month, due to incomplete harvest in many states.
