Latest Update And Summary
USDA has raised its U.S. corn and soybean production projections. If realized, we’ll see record crops for both this year.
Corn is now seen at 14.395 billion bushels, up 3% from both the August guess and the 2013 total. The average yield is pegged at 171.7 bushels per acre, nearly 13 more than a year ago. Harvested area is estimated at 83.8 million acres, unchanged from August and down 4% on the year.
Soybeans are pegged at 3.913 billion bushels, a 3% rise from last month and a 19% jump from last year. The average yield is seen at 46.6 bushels per acre, which would be up more than 3 from 2013. Harvested area is expected to be 84.1 million acres, up 11% from a year ago, which would also be a new record.
