Soybeans Up. Corn Down.

Fulton County soybean crops will prove to be the most consistent in five years, but due to a hot, dry summer, local farmers are facing a far from stellar corn crop. Officials say area soybean crops will be harvested, beginning the end of September, and farmers should be pleasantly surprised. Yields should be a bushel or two above the five-year average of 52 bushels per acre. They add, rainfalls on Aug. 14 and Aug. 28 weren’t enough to reverse the damage done to cornfields this season, after days of 90-plus degree temperatures. It looks like 170 bushels per acre, an amount similar to the current five-year trend.
