Who will be the top corn exporter?

The U.S. could soon be the top corn exporter in the world again.

The ag economists’ monthly monitor in January showed there is little doubt that Brazil will remain the world’s top exporter of soybeans for this marketing year. However, views are more mixed when it comes to corn. 43 percent of economists think Brazil will remain at the top spot while 21 percent either are unsure or think the placement will drop.

The National Corn Growers Association says it is too early to make a decision just yet as Brazilian farmers are just now beginning to plant their second corn crop.
