ILLINOIS GRAIN FARM INCOME DOWN 81% THIS YEAR

A sharp drop in Illinois grain-farm income for 2015 could continue for several years as a result of low commodity prices, according to University of Illinois projections released Wednesday.  The average $20,000 profit projected this year compared with $104,000 in 2014 would be at levels not seen since 1998 through 2002.  The 81% drop follows eight years of mostly rising prices, yields and income, as reported by the State Journal Register.
