After long, drawn-out weather-delayed fall harvest seasons in much of the Corn Belt the last 2 years, farmers are making quick work of this year's corn and soybean crops. Many are using new technology to help them take best advantage of their time and resources.

But, it's been far from perfect: Corn yields are down around 10% to 20% around the Midwest. Some farmers' crops fell victim to excessive moisture during the growing season, while others saw next to no rain fall during critical times during the year. Soybean yields, on the other hand, have been as good or better than expected. There have been issues with disease, like sudden death syndrome, that have slammed the crop in some areas. But, other farmers say new soybean varieties have led them to collect record-high yields this fall.
