Corn Crop Heading For Record

The wettest June on record has left corn fields across the Midwest, including Illinois, in line for a record crop.  Nationally, the corn crop is expected to jump 2.8 percent to 14.3 billion bushel, the most ever, even though fewer acres were planted this year than last.  The expected yield has had a negative impact on price, with corn futures dropping 20 percent since the end of April.
