Kansas State University agricultural economist Bill Tierney expects Kansas to produce 86 million bushels of soybeans this year--up 36 million from a year ago. He also estimated that Kansas soybean fields would yield 29.7 bushels per acre.

Tierney's estimates were based on a model that uses U.S. Department of Agriculture crop progress and condition data. They also take into account a USDA estimate that 2.90 million acres of beans will be harvested in Kansas.
