Record harvests predicted for corn, soybeans

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Record harvests are being forecast for corn and soybean farmers. This is despite earlier concerns over a cool growing season.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service released its latest report on the corn and soybean crop Friday, forecasting record yields for corn and record production for soybeans.

Corn production is estimated at 13 billion bushels -- that's up 8% from last year. It would also be the second highest production since 2007.

A record 3.25 billion bushels is forecast for soybeans -- that's up 10% from last year.
