Noon Edition airs on Fridays at noon on WFIU.
Soggy and flooded fields have kept corn and soybean farmers from planting, which ultimately decreases the crops they’ll yield this fall.
People can expect to see higher prices for grain and animal products as farmers dip into their reserves.
It is unclear how much land is left unplanted now, with some farmers estimating around half of their land will not yield crop this fall.
Some have opted to not attempt planting, and claim crop insurance instead. Others are taking their chances and putting their trust in Mother Nature.
