(UNDATED) - Indiana's corn and soybeans could be headed to a record year.

A U.S. Department of Agriculture report released Friday predicts the second-largest corn crop in Indiana history, with the largest soybean crop. Still, Purdue corn specialist Bob Nielsen preaches caution - he says there's still 30 to 45 days left this season. Nielsen says warmer than normal conditions persist, it might take a little bit of the frosting off the top on some of these yields.

Purdue economist Chris Hurt adds that unlike much of the U.S., revenue for Indiana farmers should be strong - mostly because last year's was so poor, due to flooding across the state.
