As farmers continue to harvest fields, the reality of the summer drought is hitting the tri-states. The drought gets the blame for the poor corn crop, but some farmers are hoping their soybean crop can pull through. "I expected maybe 40 bushel off this field here, and it’s maybe half of that if I’m lucky," farmer Kent Prather said. Wednesday is Prather’s third day shelling corn. He says he’s seeing different results depending on the type of soil in his fields, but none of the yields are high. "Its been up and its been down," Prather said. "We’ve had some better than expected yields, and where we’re at now is below any kind of an average."
