Ohio Corn Crop Strong So Far in 2010

The corn crop in Ohio has been very strong this year, as a wet and warm spring resulted in the crop taking off in most areas, already reaching as high as 10 feet tall on a number of farms.

Planting season also began early, giving it a head-start on the year. Weather throughout the growing season has also remained humid and warm, providing the best conditions corn could have.

If a moderate amount of rain is the outcome for the latter part of the growing season, Ohio could possibly break their record corn harvest set last year of 165 bushels an acre.
