The government slashed its expectations for U.S. corn and soybean production for the second consecutive month Friday, predicting what could be the lowest average corn yield in more than 15 years as the worst drought in decades scorches major farm states.
Extreme drought conditions have spread in several Plains states, but recent rainfall has slightly reduced the overall area of the lower 48 states experiencing some form of drought, according to the latest U.S. drought map.
Corn and soybean crops have been deteriorating rapidly in the Midwest as the region deals with one of the worst droughts on record. In turn, New Jersey residents can expect short-term and long-term price changes at the grocery store.
Where are the April showers? A lack of significant rainfall has prompted the state Department of Environmental Protection to encourage residents across New Jersey to take steps to conserve water, both inside and outside the home.
