Good corn crop expected
The June floods won't stop Wisconsin from having another big corn crop.
That's according to the National Ag Statistics Service.
It predicts that Wisconsin will harvest about 416 million bushels of corn this fall. That's down about 27 million bushels from last year, due to reduced acreage.
But the average yields are expected to be a bit higher - 141 bushels an acre, about six bushels more than in 2007.
