Its been a hot day in the states mid north and grain growers are worried the heat will affect crop yields.

Ben Carne is a grain grower in based at Quorn in the north and says they are back to average rain fall for the area. While the grain is growing, he is concerned that hot dry weather may shrink the grain heads and produce a low yield.
