■2010-11 U.S. CORN

[Corn Yields in Illinois]
A number of counties had extremely poor yields in 2010. Thirteen counties had yields that were more than 30 bushels below their respective county trend yields. The four counties with the worst deviations were Hancock County (54 bushels below trend), Adams County (44 bushels below trend), McDonough County (43 bushels below trend), and Schuyler county (42 bushels below trend). All of these counties were located in western Illinois, where large amounts of rain early in the growing season delayed planting and caused water damage. In some areas, this wet weather then was followed by dry, hot weather which further caused yield deterioration.
