Illinois farmers expect lower corn, soybean yields

A couple of Illinois farmers say harvest is still a few weeks away, but they’re certain yields won’t come close to 2022. Jim Campion farms in the north-central part of the state. “I can see us being 5% less on corn, maybe 10%,” he says. “There’ll be some spots where it’s going to be a lot less.  Your clay soils or timber soils that really got hurt by those dry stretches in June. But the thing we don’t have this year is pond holes, drowned-out spots, most everything we planted came up.”

He tells Brownfield his soybeans have struggled.
