April showers didn’t stop Ohio crops

Even though spring was chilly and wet, crops in Ohio have bounced back from delayed starts. Crops have flourished during the summer months, so much so that record amounts may be attained.

Corn and soybeans are two of the state’s leading crops. The Columbus Dispatch reports that so far, the USDA predicts that 13.9 billion bushels of corn will be produced, which is about as high as the yield from 2003. 415 million bushels of soybeans are predicted to be produced, which is the highest in about seven years.

If the weather remains dry throughout the rest of July, the crops will continue to thrive.
