Kentucky farmers have been hit hard by the drought.

Things are especially bad for the corn crop.

There are estimates that 60% of America's corn has been affected by the drought.

And farmers say right now is the time when corn needs the most water, and farms just aren't getting it.

This will affect you.

A smaller corn crop means higher prices for the many products that use corn.
