Yields were better than expected in Washington County, but low prices are leading some farmers to store their grains until the market improves. Jim Cuddeback grows corn and soybeans west of Washington. He says with a stretch of 51 days with no rain, he wasn’t expecting much, but his yields were decent. He explains prices for corn and soybeans are much lower now than they were the past two years. Meaning some farmers are choosing to store their harvest, with the hopes of better prices down the road.
