Corn prices up sharply

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) - The price of corn ended the week up sharply.

Prices soared to the $.30 per bushel limit to $5.28.

This came after the USDA lowered corn yield estimates from 179 bushels to acre to 169 bushels per acre.

As a comparison, last year Iowa farmers averaged 182 bushels per acre.
