FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Many have noticed the amazingly-high corn stalks in the fields and the USDA predicts that this year's corn crop could be the largest in U.S. history.

The soybean crop could be the third largest. Experts say good weather, including plenty of rain at the right time and moderate temperatures helped a lot.

Experts also say the big crops will mean lower food prices.
