Soybeans are projected to take over corn in the upcoming acreage report, third time in history

We are awaiting a big report tomorrow that should tell us if farmers planted more soybeans than corn this year.

The USDA’s Prospective Planting Report, filed in late March, sent shockwaves through the markets. It showed farmers would only plant 89.5 million acres of corn when they were expecting 92 million. Still, experts know there are a lot of variables.

“There’s a lot of speculation out there about what those acreage levels are going to look like.”

If the report holds true, this will be only the third time the U.S. has planted more soybeans than corn.


Experts warn the level of uncertainty ahead of this year’s acreage report is unprecedented
