The Illinois Field Office of National Agricultural Statistics Service last week released the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s June Crop Production Report.
State and national highlights of the report include:
The Illinois wheat yield for the 2012 crop is estimated to average 61 bushels per acre, based on the June 1 surveys, down one bushel from the May 1 forecast, but the same as last year.
Total production would be 38.4 million bushels, a decrease of 18 percent from the 2011 production of 46.7 million bushels.
