From left, Brian Flatt, 36, Jadon Flatt, 9, and Ron Flatt, 60, stand in a corn field on their farm in Audrain County on May 30. Because of an unusually wet season, only 70 percent of their corn crop has been planted. Ideally, all of the corn would have been planted by late April and the stalks would be about waist-high by now.
