The Virginia Department of Agriculture is out with its anticipated yields and production for the 2012 harvest season and warm weather is taking its toll on some crops.
Virginia's corn yields are expected to be 91 bushels per acre, down 27 per acre from last year. Corn production nationwide is forecast down 13 percent from last year and the lowest production since 2006.
However, the peanut, cotton and flue tobacco crops in Virginia are all expected to rise.
