What Bert Has To Say About Decatur Metro Area

Decatur forms the bottom point of a 90-mile wide, 40-mile-tall diamond formed by Springfield to the west, Bloomington-Normal to the north, and Champaign-Urbana to the east. Common to the area, agriculture dominates the commercial activity and the local landscape. Agricultural processing giant Archer Daniels Midland has its headquarters in Decatur, and Caterpillar and agricultural processor Tate & Lyle also operate large plants.
