Illinois farmers have a great natural advantage in the production and use of corn. This crop usually gives the highest return per acre and per hours of man labor, provided yields can be kept at a high level—70 bushels an acre or more. Soybeans give high returns, particularly for labor. They do not deplete the soil of nitrogen. They fit well into a cropping pattern because wheat can be readily seeded after them. Wheat provides cash income in midsummer, a time when other crap income is absent. Restrictions of government farm programs limit the acreage of wehat that can be grown. Other small-grain crops, particularly oats, give only moderate returns. They are used mainly to provide a nurse crop for legume and grass seedings, and to give some income during the transition from cultivated crops to a soil-improving grass and legume crop. Legumes and grasses are grown for livestock feed and for soil maintenance and improvement. High-yielding and high-quality hay and pasture crops, when fed to efficient livestock, can also be relatively high-profit crops.

Written by Chester C. Zych and Dwight Powell, it is primarily for commercial growers. The 56-page publication covers planting, management practices, marketing, insect and disease control and many other items that growers will find helpful.
