A dried up and dead cornfield in Texas.
By Kiernan Majeus-Collins
Looking over thousands of stalks, not one is green, not one is left alive.
From here, along state route 84, the deserted fields stretch for many miles, a number of them already plowed under. There are farmers who have already given up on this year's crop.
These fields are some of the American farmlands that are suffering from the nation's worst drought since the 1950s.
