Though last year’s growing season wasn’t without its challenges, it also showed to be a “bin buster” with 13 states reporting record corn and soybean yields. Even amidst record drought, supply chain disruptions and more, total corn production was 7% higher than the 2020 estimate and soybeans grew 5%. In fact, 2021’s corn crop barely missed the record bin-busting year that was 2016.
States with new corn production records include Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington and Wisconsin. States reporting record soybean yields include Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
