Yields blew out the combine when you see this

Drive just about anywhere in the state and you can find old corn fields that have a tremendous amount of young corn plants in them. The amount of plants in fields and the number of fields with volunteer corn plants seems much higher than normal.

The extent of ground cover by the young plants (in Kentucky) makes the fields look as if someone intentionally planted them to corn this fall. There may be a few reasons for this.
