(WIAT) — Corn prices are on the rise this year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Prices are reportedly up over 6 percent, partly because of fear on the part of farmers.

An overabundance of rain and cooler temperatures in the Midwest, a region traditionally known for producing much of the nation’s corn product, is delaying planting.

The delay means a possible shortage in the crop and higher prices for consumers.
