A weekend fire near Columbia, MO, took a toll. Some police are reporting a combine fire started the blaze.

Windy conditions caused problems elsewhere, including Indiana where a corn maze had to be evacuated because of nearby fire.

Univeristy of Florida says ag losses from hurricane damage could easily exceed $1.5 billion.

The value of the current Florida citrus crop is expected to be down 80 percent from 10 years ago.

Max asked on Twitter: Would you like a rain day? Some farmers said yes, they could use a rain delay.
