Larry Geurink (L) and his son Nathan, 17, walk through their 75 acres of corn on their rural Davenport, Iowa farm just checking on its growth. Most of the corn is standing about six feet tall, which is above average for this time of year in Iowa. The average height in Illinois is about 49" which is below the average due to excessive amounts of rain according to the USDA.
