Nearly Half Of Illinois’ Corn Already Harvested
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois farmers are almost halfway done with the corn harvest. The latest crop report for the state came out yesterday, and shows that 48 percent of the state’s corn is already out of the field. The report says 35 percent of the state’s soybeans have also been harvested. USDA statisticians say last week’s string of warm, dry days helped farmers get a jump on the harvest.
