at 81.5 million acres, up less than 1 percent from the revised 2018 estimate.

Soybean production in 2019 totaled 3.56 billion bushels, down 20 percent from 2018. The average yield per acre was estimated at 47.4 bushels, down
3.2 bushels from 2018. Harvested area was down 14 percent from 2018 to

Winter Wheat Seedings:

Planted area for harvest in 2020 is estimated at 30.8 million
acres, down 1 percent from 2019 and down 5 percent from 2018. This represents the second lowest United States acreage on record. Seeding of the 2020 acreage was underway in mid-September but was behind the 5-year average pace.
