Planting predictions for Illinois farmers

More beans, less corn. That's the planting forecast for Illinois farmers this year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Farmers in Illinois are expected to plant twelve-point-two million-acres of corn, down 600-thousand-acres from last year. Soybean farmers are expected to plant nine-point-four-million-acres of beans, an increase of 400-thousand-acres. The USDA report says last year's drought damage to the corn crop has farmers planning more acres of other crops.
