The U.S. Corn Harvest

Unfortunately, I've posted a lot of articles this year about terrible floods from around the world, and the devestating impact they have had on people, crops and farms.

Back in June for example I posted about the floods in the midwest of the U.S.A.

At the time a blogger who is listed on Farm Blogs From Around the World, Midlife by Farmlight commented that in Iowa the corn was "probably the shortest I've ever seen it for this time in June, but it's starting to take off now that the rains have stopped and the sun is shining."

I'd be interested to know how the harvest came in, so any info, pics or anecdotes, please do let me know at info AT

Mr. Ian, some reports from have the corn and other crops at record levels. While in some parts of a state the amounts may be below average, they are made up for in another part. The yields are expected to be above what the government estimated.
