TODAY ON AGDAY
OCTOBER 10, 2012

CROP PROGRESS:

Good morning I’m Clinton Griffith’s. Corn harvest continues its break-neck pace.

I-80 HARVEST:

The far eastern cornbelt is not as frenetic of a pace, but it's still ahead of average. This morning Tyne Morgan takes us just south of interstate 80 in henry county, Ohio, Tyne.

CROP WATCH:
Thanks Tyne. We also heard from a farmer on the opposite side of the state. Mike Hoffman has details in cropwatch.

CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE:
