Corn crop ‘hanging on’
Rain needed soon, farmer says
DIXON – Lee County farmer Jim Schielein knows the heat is taking a toll on his corn crop.
Wednesday, he pointed to the leaves curling up on his Woosung farm.
“The plants are protecting themselves from the heat and the lack of moisture,” he said.
“It’s 84 or 85 degrees now. We get 100-degree heat tomorrow, it [crop] will look like pineapple.”
