This years corn crops

Usually one bad year is survivable. Hopefully weather will cooperate next year, and the Chinese market should fully return in 2021.  I’m hopeful most farmers will  recover.

OK, I can't discuss because living where I do I don't know anything about the field corn crops.

That is really cheap. I was thinking your ears were probably coming from Alabama, where a lot of ear corn is grown. But their corn should have  all been gone a couple of months ago.

Don't know where it comes from except Kroger will advertise Olathe sweet corn early in the summer. From Olathe, CO. And they price the stuff like gold.
