Warm Weather Helps Northern Michigan Corn Crop

The hot weather is actually helping the northern Michigan corn crop.

Gingrich Meadows Farm in Osceola County says its crop is really taking off.

Some fields were planted late because they were not dry enough at the end of May. The recent warm weather is helping that corn catch up.

The MSU Extension office in Reed City says the corn crop south of Cadillac has had more rain compared to most fields to the north.

If we keep getting rain on a regular basis farmers are expecting a good harvest. They say we are at a critical point right now in the growth cycle of the crop.

9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and photojournalist Martillio Palmer have more on how the warm weather is affecting the corn crop.
