During Monday’s solar eclipse, while many spectators across the country will turn their eyes upward to see the moon pass in front of the sun, scientists in the Midwest farm belt will turn their eyes and cameras to the plants and animals here on the ground to observe the effects of a total eclipse on agriculture. Harvest Public Media’s Kristofor Husted reports.
