After one of the wettest years on record, a drought could start to creep into the Midwest.
The latest drought monitor shows parts of Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana are now on the brink of a drought. The Midwest Region of the drought monitor is 84% drought-free, down from 91% last week.
Any classified drought in the corn belt can potentially lead to yield loss, especially this year where many fields were planted late.
A late harvest season is also expected this year, with concerns of early frost damage.
