The state of Missouri is expecting record-setting corn crops despite this summer's heat.
Osamu Fujimaru has more from Jefferson City.
The dry spell and triple-digit temperatures in August weren't enough to hurt Missouri's corn.
Kyle Vickers, deputy director of the Agriculture Department, says Missouri's corn yield will be better than normal.
But, Vickers says that early rainfall wasn't enough to save soybean crops in the southwestern part of the state.
There, the dry weather damaged soybean quality and crop size.
This is Osamu Fujimaru in Jefferson City.
