Indiana corn and soybean producers anticipate a very good 2020 crop, though one that has been reduced slightly due to a drier than ideal August, according to USDA NASS, Great Lakes Regional Field Office.

Some highlights of the Crop Production Report, which are based on conditions as of September 1, follow:

- Indiana's corn yield is forecast at 186 bushels per acre, up 17 bushels from 2019 but down 2 bushels from the August forecast. Total production is forecast at 977 million bushels, up 20 percent from a year ago.

- Soybean yield in Indiana is forecast at 60 bushels per acre, up 9 bushels from last year, but down 1 bushel from last month. Total production is forecast at 341 million bushels, up 25 percent from last year.

Nationally, corn production for grain is forecast at 14.9 billion bushels, up nine percent for the year. Yields are expected to average a record high 178.5 bushels per harvested acre, which is 11.1 bushels more than in 2019.
