INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Department of Agriculture is projecting a record corn crop in Indiana. Pushing production beyond one-billion bushels for the first time.

It also forecasts a record corn crop nationally.

The production will enable U.S. farmers to meet worldwide demands for grain in food and for ethanol blends in gasoline to fuel cars.

However, the state's soybean crop is expected to drop to 259-million bushels from 266-million in 2009.
