The annual Bond County Farm Bureau crop survey was conducted Tuesday morning.
It’ll come as no surprise that with the challenging weather farmers have faced this year, the corn and soybean averages are lower than last year.
Katie Cayo, farm bureau manager, said the unofficial county average for corn is 174.3 bushels and for corn is 45.5. She said it’s hard to identify where the best and worst results are in the county.
