Despite exceptionally late planting that wrapped up in mid-May, the Alabama corn crop looks great, says Don Glenn, who farms in Hillsboro. The city is located in the north-central part of the state.

"We set a record on our farm by about 25% over our normal yields," Glenn tells Farm Journal Radio’s Pam Fretwell. In a normal year, corn yields between 150 bu. and 160 bu. per acre.

The region stayed wet during the summer, then turned cool, Glenn says, noting that he started off the season with a pessimistic outlook that changed over time. He also grows wheat, winter canola and soybeans.
