Corny

I read this morning that the Nebraska corn harvest is only 93% complete as of Sunday.  December 20th, and 7% of the corn is still in the fields!  And with more snow on the way, it's probably going to be well into January before harvest is complete.  This is the latest corn harvest in 37 years!

Wow, that's odd...I haven't been out of town lately, so I don't know what it's like in Iowa, but I know that there was still plenty out far later than usual...

As of the 20th, the Iowa corn crop was 98% harvested, with about 50 million bushels worth still remaining. Across the whole of the US, 650 million bushels of corn are still in the fields.

The current price of corn is $4.085 per bushel.
