By James Brown, The Associated Press Fox Sports – The U.S. corn crop is starting to bounce back after being rocked by drought and other problems.
The crop is on track to grow a little over 2 million bushels, an increase of more than 30 percent from the same time last year, according to the U.N. Department of Agriculture.
Corn, a staple food in the U, wheat and rice are all benefiting from the drought, which has left many farmers short of cash.
But some corn farmers have found ways to turn things around.
“We are getting some relief from the current situation,” said Brian Boggs, of South Carolina.
“We are not at full strength but we are at a higher level than we were last year.”
The USDA said the USDA-funded Corn Belt Development Program helped feed about 20 million people during the dry season, including more than a million children and pregnant women.
About 3 million farmers were benefiting from it.
The USDA-supported program, which is run by the U: Corn Center, has provided more than $1.3 billion for food and nutrition programs to rural and rural-based farmers.
The Corn Belt, also known as the Midwest Corn Belt and the Midwest Wheat Belt, is a region of about 40 million people in northern Iowa and southern Wisconsin.
Its corn is used to make flour, corn syrup and other products.
The region has a population of more in the millions.
The corn crop has been hit hard by drought in the Midwest, with yields down and prices rising.
Some farmers have started feeding the crop to animals.
The U.NSDCA, which works to reduce poverty in developing countries, has received funding from the U.: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations since its inception in 2000.
The U: Food and Agricultural Organization of Canada also provides funding.
