Net farm income projections for 2013

Net farm income projections for 2013

Given projected prices for corn and soybeans, 2013 farm incomes likely would be above average.

Current futures prices suggest harvest-time 2013 prices of $5.80 per bushel for corn and $12.40 per bushel for soybeans. 

You can check current commodity prices now.

To quantify income projections, farm incomes for a 1,200 Illinois grain farm are simulated and presented.
