Race Is On To Harvest Corn, Soybeans In Illinois
October 14, 2019 12:34PM CDT
Farmers across Illinois are racing against the clock to bring in their corn and soybean crops. Historic flooding and heavy spring rains left many farmers planting late, which means a late harvest. Farmers are hoping to get the crops in before the first frost damages or even destroys them. As of October 6th, only 13-percent of the state’s corn and eleven-percent of the state’s soybeans had been harvested.
