Illinois Corn Harvest
In this Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014 photo, a full moon rises, while the sun sets over a cornfield in Farmington, Ill. Many central Illinois corn farmers are struggling to harvest this year's crop of corn. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says wet weather has turned Illinois' corn harvest into a slog. The USDA says that last week's heavy rainfall across much of Illinois has kept many growers across the state from bringing in their crop. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
