The heat wave has hit the corn crop with a vengeance.
And Senator Tom Carper got a firsthand look during a visit to a farm west of Georgetown yesterday.
The Delaware Democrat along with state and federal officials looked over a corn crop on the farm of Mark Davis where the corn found few kernels on the ear.
A recent report says more than 60 percent of the nation is in the throes of the worst drought in decades.
And Davis said he won’t even bother to harvest the non-irrigated corn.
Instead, he will simply mow it down.
