US grain exports snagged by infrastructure delays

UNDATED (AP) - As the worldwide demand grows for American wheat and corn many grain elevator managers are finding it difficult to
transport it.

Mark Hodges of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission says he's seen mounds of grain sitting on the ground waiting to be shipped because
there aren't enough rail cars to haul it.

And the situation may get worse because of a large harvest expected this fall.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts farmers will produce the second largest corn crop and fourth largest soybean crop in history.
