Agents said the marijuana was most likely replanted along the corn’s edge after the plants had gotten big enough. The crop had an estimated street value of $180,000.
Agents say the edge of a corn crop is a very common place to grow marijuana in hopes to utilize the corn’s fertilizer and attempt to keep it out of sight; however, growers don’t take into account there may be farmers, hunters or just the average hiker that can stumble upon this illegal contraband and then it just takes one call and it’s all over.
No arrests have been made at his time. The investigation is ongoing.
