July 8, 2014


(Chicago, IL)  --  The wettest June on record has left corn fields across the Midwest, including Illinois, in line for a record crop.  Nationally, the corn crop is expected to jump two-point-eight percent to 14-point-three-billion bushels, the most ever, even though fewer acres were planted this year than last.  The expected yield has had a negative impact on price, with corn futures dropping 20 percent since the end of April.
