Corn Harvest Above Expectations Due to Weather

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP): Farmers in many states are surprised at the abundance of corn coming from their fields, and record harvests are likely in many states including Indiana and Ohio. In southeastern Nebraska, farmer Ben Steffen says his first field brought in 168 bushels an acre, above the average of 140. The best crops are in areas with adequate rain and where corn pollinated amid cooler temperatures.
