Survey sees more corn and bean acres this spring
ST. CHARLES – U.S. farmers are ready to increase production of corn and soybeans for 2013, according to the latest Farm Futures survey.
The magazine's survey of more than 1,750 growers found farmers ready to plant 97.43 million acres of corn, up .3 percent from 2012. If achieved, the total would be the most since 1936.
The increase in soybeans could be even more dramatic. Farmers said they want to plant 79.09 million acres this spring, up 2.5 percent from 2012 and easily an all-time record if achieved.
