Record rainfall over the past few days is helping crops grow but may actually be hurting local farmers. With rainfall totals between 6 to 9 inches across the area, Missouri Farm Bureau official Kelly Smith believes we’re on pace for record corn growth. But that’s the only good news as farmers may not have the places to store the surplus corn. With costs of building extra buildings increasing, farmers may be forced to sell their corn at cheaper prices to get rid of the extra amounts. While the increased costs to farmers won’t effect the price of corn in the supermarket right now, it may affect it into the next year.
