Ag report forecasts record corn, soybean crops

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) ¿ Record harvests are being forecast for corn and soybean farmers despite earlier concerns over a cool growing season.

In a report released Friday, the National Agricultural Statistics Service forecasts record yields for corn and record production for soybeans.

Corn production is estimated at 13 billion bushels, up 8 percent from 2008. If true, it will be the second highest production since 2007, when 13.04 billion bushels were harvest.

Yields are forecast to average a record 164.2 bushels per acre, up more than 10 bushels from 2008.
