Some local farmers planting less corn

  Mike Ferguson uses a large vacuum hose to take soybeans out of a storage facility on the Keith Houts farm on Schleucher Road in Mercer County last week. Some county farmers say they will plant less corn acres this year due to high nitrogen fertilizer costs and grow soybeans or wheat instead. Houts said he thought about switching his corn acres over to beans this year, but decided against it.
