Thanks to an unusually wet summer, Illinois farmers are expecting record corn and soybean crops.  After surveying cornfields in some Central Illinois counties, Premier farming cooperative predicts an annual yield of 224 bushels per acre.

CEO Roger Miller said that would top 2014's record crop.

Miller says the storms have also left corn stalks leaning and vulnerable to other hazards.
