The 2010 Illinois corn crop is expected to yield 180 bushels per acre, up 6 bushels from last year’s yield and equal to the record yield set in 2004.
Production of corn for grain would be 2.23 billion bushels, up 9 percent from 2009. Favorable conditions led to very early planting dates, followed by generally good growing weather with mostly adequate rainfall, although temperatures were excessive.
