Corn Harvest 2012Harvesting season has come much earlier to various parts of the country due to the current 2012 drought. Many farmers are weighing their options and hoping for rain and a better crop next year. Currently corn prices and demand remain high, but farmers know these types of economic conditions can change quickly too.

Check out this story and see first-hand what farmers are looking at with respect to harvesting. I really believe stories like this one give us a true sense of what is really happening and how each of us is affected in some way.Yields will be way down compared to previous years, but farmers continue to remain optimistic that conditions will be better in the future.
