Farmer Tom Albaugh inspects drought impacted soybeans in a field on his farm, Monday, Aug. 20, 2012, in Ankeny, Iowa. Albaugh expects 35 to 40 bushels per acre, down from the average of the last four years of 50 bushels. The harvest is three to four weeks ahead of schedule in most of the corn belt because an unusually warm spring allowed farmers to plant earlier. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)
