Contract/Preliminary Title Work

The Helen A. Ritchie Unitrust Farm consists of a large tract of McLean and Dewitt County farmland with high quality soils with a strong yield history and high fertility.  It is mainly one contiguous block split by township roads and along Interstate 55 at Funks Grove, Illinois, combined with an 80 acre tract ½ mile east of Waynesville, Illinois (~ 8 miles south).  The McLean County tract contains ~455 tillable acres with a weighted average soil productivity index of 138, the majority (91%) of which is Ipava, Catlin and Sable soil types.  The Dewitt County tract is 78.8 FSA cropland acres with a weighted soil productivity index of 133.5.  The five-year yield history (2016-2020) average is 235.8 for corn and 69.6 bushels/acre for soybeans.  Soil tests taken in October, 2020, show fertility in McLean County averaged 6.5 pH, Phosphorus-96 & Potassium-490.  The Dewitt County farm had an average pH of 6.2, Phosphorus-55 and Potassium-357 (lbs), so the major fertility components are in optimal condition. The farm has been under our management for many years.  There is a building site on the McLean County tract that contains grain and machinery storage.  There are no buildings on the Dewitt County parcel.  The lease will be open for 2022.  Contact Brian Thompson, Broker, for additional details at bthompson@firstmid.com or (309) 665-0959.
