Corn Farmers http://redriverradio.org en Louisiana corn farmers expect bumper crop http://redriverradio.org/post/louisiana-corn-farmers-expect-bumper-crop <p>The corn harvest in Louisiana is in full swing, and on the stalks are large ears of corn. Ronnie Levy, LSU AgCenter’s corn specialist, said Louisiana farmers are expecting a bumper crop. The state has about 700,000 acres of corn, a significant increase over recent years. But the difference this year, according to Levy, is the price of a bushel of corn is about half of what it was last year, since the harvest in the Midwest is expected to be equally abundant.</p><p></p> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 10:30:48 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 32005 at http://redriverradio.org Louisiana corn farmers expect bumper crop
