With prospects of record fall crops, Kansas farmers are anxious to harvest. But they’re having to work around the changing weather.Autumn Harvest May Break Record In Kansas

"In our business you've got to work around the weather and do what the weather allows you to do when the crops are ready," said Colwich farmer Alvin Neville.

Many area farmers are starting to harvest soybeans, one of the three big fall crops.

If crop forecasters are correct, Kansas farmers will have a lot to harvest this fall. Corn is forecast at 518.4 million bushels, soybeans at 140 million bushels and milo at 82 bushels per acre.

There are also high hopes for large crops across the nation. The U.S. corn crop is forecast to have the highest yield per acre and be the second largest crop.

Record crops will impact price and will likely be more than elevators can store.
