With combines in the field day and night and huge piles of corn stacking up near grain elevators, people may be under the impression that central Illinois farmers are having another bin-busting, record crop yield. That impression may be misleading.

“There are always corn piles at harvest, and the bins are always full at harvest, so there isn't really anything different to see at this harvest than at any other harvest,” said Phil Thornton of the Illinois Corn Growers Association.
