Record crops expected in U.S.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -- The federal government is anticipating the largest crop in U.S. history.   The U.S. Department of Agriculture forecasts output of corn and soybeans will top last year by 2%.  Corn yields are also expected to be the best on record while soybeans should match last year's all time high figures. Wheat prices have been rising recently after massive fires in Russia, costing that nation more than 1/3 of its wheat crop.
