States That Produce the Most Soybeans (2020)

The United States is the largest soybean producer in the world, and the second largest soybean exporter. Originally, the USDA forecasted about 3.51 billion in soybean production for 2019, but the final amount of soybeans produced in the U.S. ended up being around 3.56 billion bushels. Since we let you know what states produced both the most corn and wheat, we thought it would only be right to inform you of what the top soybean producing states for 2019 were.

Comprising about 30% of the total U.S. soybean production, the top two states that produced the most soybeans in 2019 were Illinois and Iowa, both producing over 500 million bushels.
