State agriculture officials say it looks like Missouri farmers could see a bumper crop this year that’s the good news. The bad news might be, a large supply has a tendency to push down prices for those products. But Chris Klenklen at the State Agriculture Department says there’s plenty of market for the grains coming out of Missouri’s fields. Klenklen says farmers are a little bit behind the normal harvest schedule for this time of year, but with some good weather that can be made up. He says this year’s abundant rains have helped replenish areas hit hard by drought the last couple of years, especially northwest Missouri where a large portion of the grain harvest comes from.
