From the corn fields of the Dakotas to the plains of Nebraska, farmers across the state are finding ways to generate cash to buy more corn.
They are also selling off their own fields for profit.
It is the biggest-ever Iowa corn-fueled auction, with a record-breaking $6.2bn (£4.3bn) of auctions taking place across the country.
Some of those auctions have already taken place.
Here’s a guide to where and when to look for the biggest corn-buying opportunities in your area.
The price of corn has been on the rise for a while in the US.
But it has soared in the last year.
Here are some of the biggest, according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The USDA says that the average US farmer buys 5,000 bushels of corn a year, but that the price of the crop has been rising over the last two years.
It has been trending upwards in recent years, rising at a rate of 8.7 per cent between 2015 and 2020.
Corn is used to make cotton and soybeans, but also as a staple crop in some other parts of the world, including Brazil and India.
Corn prices have also been on a steady rise in the past few years, with the USDA predicting that they could rise as much as 10 per cent this year.
The rise has helped the corn industry boost its profits.
The average farmer is earning $8,500 a year on the average corn crop, up from $6,000 last year, according the USDA.
But many farmers are not as lucky.
Corn farmers can also sell their fields to big investors who are paying between $10,000 and $50,000 for the same crop.
The farmers are typically told that they can sell for much more if they are willing to sell their crops for a profit.
But the farmers who sell their field for a bigger profit are often more fortunate.
They will usually get much more cash than the other buyers.
This is because they are not required to sell the fields to the investor.
Some farmers sell their corn for a large profit.
Others sell their acreage for a smaller profit.
For the corn farmers, there is a difference between getting a bigger harvest and getting a better price.
Some have received a profit of as much $100,000 (£77,000) or more on their corn acreage.
And some farmers have gotten a bigger payment from the investor than the average farmer.
Some are able to keep their corn in the field for years, others have not.
It’s the farmer’s business to figure out a way to get the corn they need to feed their families, said Kevin Koehn, a senior adviser with the Iowa State University’s Center for Sustainable Agriculture.
“This year, there was a lot of interest in Iowa from outside Iowa in the corn auctions, but some farmers were surprised at how much cash they were getting for their acreages,” he said.
Some corn farmers have also found ways to save money.
Koehm said that some corn farmers in Iowa sold their acrements for $100 to $200 each.
But this is just a small portion of the corn farmer’s income.
“Some farmers sell less than the $200 or $300 that the farmers they are selling from the field get for the land,” he explained.
The biggest-selling auction in Iowa is the $6bn (£3.5bn) Wausau surplus auction.
The state’s largest auction took place in March 2018.
In this auction, the corn buyers get to buy out the rest of their acre, but the value of the field they own remains the same.
“The price of an acre is a very valuable commodity.
You don’t want to sell your farm because you don’t have the same value,” said Koehler.
Some local corn farmers are making money off of this auction.
“I would say we are making more money selling than buying.
We have a few farmers who are selling out the fields and the value is being kept,” said Matt Miller, a farmer who sells corn on his property in Wausan.
Miller said he sells corn to other farmers and makes a good living from it.
But Miller said that many farmers sell corn for pennies on the dollar.
“We are selling at the same price that the other farmers are selling,” he added.
“And we are getting more corn from them than they are getting from us.”
The auction is also attracting interest from farmers in other states.
The Iowa State Fair is holding another auction on May 1, 2019.
This time, farmers are buying a lot more of their corn than they had at the previous auction.
According to the Iowa Agriculture Department, about 3,000 acres are up for sale in the Iowa Corn Growers Association’s Wauson Auction, which will take place at Wausonee State Park in Waukesha,
