Kansas farmers are expected to harvest the biggest corn crop in the state’s history this year.

The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service on Thursday forecast corn production in Kansas at 629.2 million bushels. That would surpass by far even last year’s record crop of 598.3 million bushels.

Kansas growers planted 4.7 million acres in corn this year, the highest planted acreage for corn in the state since 1936.
