Bumper crop yields hit grain prices

PIQUA — On the plains of Piqua, there’s a storm a-brewing. Not a storm of rain, but a storm caused in part by rain.

Farmers have enjoyed the fruits of bountiful rainfall. May 19 was the first time since July of 2010 that no county in Kansas suffered from drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor and the Hutchinson News.

As inches of rain rose in the rain gauges, per-acre crop yields also increased across the state. But commodity prices have fallen sharply in the past month.
