Quinn tours drought-stricken Southern Illinois farm
With the warm spring, farmers were able to plant early and corn and soy seeds went in at a remarkable pace.
"We were set out to raise what we thought was probably the largest corn crop in the history of American agriculture," Said Illinois Farm Bureau President Phillip Nelson.
Instead, months of drought are killing those expectations ... and the corn. Nelson says some farmers will end up with no crop, or only half of one.
