After Slow Start, Minnesota Corn Could See Record Harvest
Despite a late planting season, Minnesota's corn looks good.
The USDA expects Minnesota farmers to see high yields when they harvest corn later this year.
The most recent USDA crop predictions call for a record corn crop of 1.4 billion bushels.
John Lamb is with the University of Minnesota Extension, he says the state's corn crop faced early challenges, "We got off to a slow start, we've had concerns. We started out with it being very dry and then we got all those rains and we had trouble getting it planted."
Dealing with last year's drought, corn was selling for about $7 a bushel. Now it's selling in the mid $4 range.
