The corn harvest is coming in slower this year, and ag experts say it’s all due to difficult harvest conditions. In some places, stalks are in standing water about knee-high, with high water all too common throughout the region. Some farmers estimate that only 10% of the corn has been combined. For instance, by this time most years, many plants have full bins and another 1 million to 2.5 million bushels of corn in bunkers. This year, only about a fourth of the bins are filled. It’s not just the fields either… Prairie roads are slick, muddy, and in some cases, nearly impassable.
