The U.S. Department of Agricultural estimates the value of corn for grain was up 36 percent from 2010 to $3.95 billion.
Soybeans were valued at $1.72 billion, and hay was valued at 1 billion.
The wheat crop was valued at $799.5 million and alfalfa hay was valued at $793.1 million.
Crop values are determined by multiplying the average market price by total production.
