You might not like our mild summer, but corn growers sure do.
They had a later than normal start to the planting season but are back on pace because of the cooler temps.
And they tell us now is a good time for you to buy corn.
Scott Lonier, a fifth generation corn grower, said, "We, the corn industry, were pretty much blamed a couple of years ago during the drought, when corn went up to seven or eight dollars, for your grocery bill getting larger and larger."
"Well, most people don't know, but corn's actually half the price of what it was back then," he said.
Growers are paying higher prices for fertilizers and pesticides, so next year's prices might not be as consumer friendly.
