While the latest USDA August Crop Production estimates nationally were down for corn and soybeans, North Carolina's estimates were much better than the national averaage, and better than this time last year, according to NC Ag Commissioner Steve Troxler. All this in spite of early July's hot, dry weather. Production of corn, peanuts, soybeans and flue-cured tobacco is up in North Carolina compared to last year, and the really good news is that yields per acre are higher than a year ago, as well.
