Farm Income Outlook for 2022
December 1, 2021 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CST
The economic situation on Illinois grain farms has brightened with higher grain prices, resulting in relatively high incomes for 2021. Prices in 2022 could continue to be above the long-run average, but costs will increase substantially. If prices remain above average, incomes in 2022 likely will be near average. However, the higher 2022 costs require much higher corn and soybean prices to reach break-even.
