MONROE - Despite concerns about dry weather this summer, area farmers are seeing higher than average crop yields this harvest. The 2015 harvest season is growing to a close, said Green County Agriculture Agent Mark Mayer, and while late summer conditions pointed to less hopeful yields, soybeans and corn are both looking to exceed expectations. Low rainfall in late July and into most of August was a concern for planters in Green County.
