Illinois Corn and Soybean Harvests at Record Low Levels

Henry Kissinger supposedly once said, "Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people." As our nation's food stockpiles continue to deplete, it does not give me much confidence to hear that soybean and corn harvests are at record lows. This does not seem to be a government conspiracy meant to control us all (yet), because these record low crop levels appear to be the result of the Mother Nature giving Illinois too much rain.

Illinois soybean and corn levels are at their lowest levels in four decades because of the state's record rainfall, according to the Illinois Agriculture Department's statistics.

There hasn't been this small of a percentage corn crop since 1967, according to the statistics.
