Strong corn crop this fall pleases farmers

Associated Press • Nov 18, 2013 at 6:30 PM

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Ohio should have nation’s seventh- biggest corn crop with 632 million bushels.

Ohio farmers on average are projected to get 174 bushels per acre. A year ago, the average yield in the state was 123 bushels per acre.

Farmers told The Blade newspaper in Toledo that yields range quite a bit because of strong summer storms that drenched some fields.

Ohio State University agricultural economist Barry Ward said when farmers choose to sell their corn will have a big impact on how much money they make.
