Tall corn & more in central Illinois

Agriculture.com Chicago Markets Bureau Chief Mike McGinnis found tall corn, green soybeans, and aerial crop spraying this week in McLean County, Illinois.
 
After pulling back the shucks on this ear of corn, near Cooksville, Illinois, it's evident the corn is off to a great start. Grain fills the ear all the way to the tip. The grain length measures about 7 inches.
