Illinois planting dates
Corn and soybean planting dates by county
Farmers and landowners who participate in the Federal Crop Insurance Program are urged to mark their calendars for planting dates. As the spring planting season gets underway, producers and landowners may need to be reminded of the season’s timeline in order to meet deadlines.
The dates provided by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) vary by county and give specific deadlines for getting corn and soybeans into the ground.
