Abstract

Agriculture in the Corn Belt is big business. It is a specialized business, depending very much on only a few intensively grown crops. During the 5-year period 1964-68, farmers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and contiguous corn-producing states harvested annual averages of 45, 24, and 12 millions of acres of corn, soybeans, and oats, respectively. These acreages made up 79%, 66%, and 69% of the national acreages of these crops, and produced 85% of the nation’s corn, 70% of the soybeans, and 73% of the oats. M arketed directly or through livestock, these three crops and forages traditionally have formed the major basis of agriculture in the Corn Belt.
