Late Heat Wave Hurting Indiana Crops

Just a few weeks ago, the USDA predicted potentially record-breaking corn yields for Indiana - nearly double last summer's. But now, experts have downgraded the the yield from "an exceptional year" to good. It's too late in the season for the crop to recover, a widespread soaking rain could prevent further damage.

This late season heat wave is taking its toll on Indiana crops.

Just a few weeks ago, the USDA predicted potentially record-breaking corn yields for Indiana - nearly double last summer's.

But now, experts have downgraded the the yield from "an exceptional year" to good.
