Soybean yields are a bright spot in this year of heat and drought. Late summer rains made beans. Indiana average yield is estimated to be 44.0 bushels per acre, down from 45.5 bushels last year. Best yields are from north, central and eastern regions of the state. Lowest bean yields were in the western regions, from central to south. Kentucky soybean yield was 38 bushels per acre, mostly from double crop acres. Double crop yields were outstanding for fields with good stands. Stand establishment was a challenge for double crop acres from the Ohio River north into southern Indiana.
