Despite heavy rains this spring and summer, a bumper crop of corn and soybeans is predicted for the state this fall. The Ohio agricultural statistics service says corn yields are expected to be 142 bushels per acre close to the state record of 147 bushels in 2000. Total estimated Ohio corn production of 454 million bushels would be an 80 percent increase from last year’s drought-diminished crop. Ohio’s soybean harvest is predicted at 42 bushels per acre, up 40 percent from last year and just shy of the record 44 bushels in 1998.
