Harvest Surprise-12

FILE - In this Oct. 7, 2013 file photo, a farmer dumps corn in a grain trailer as he harvests a field near Clear Lake, Iowa. Farmers in many states are surprised at the abundance of corn coming from their fields, and record harvests are likely in many states. The best crops are in areas with adequate rain and where corn pollinated amid cooler temperatures. The positive surprise is welcome after the dismal harvest for many farmers last year when drought spread across the country reducing corn and soybean crops. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates this year's harvest to bring in 13.8 billion bushels of corn, beating the 2009 record of 13.1 billion bushels. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall, file)
