Are you weighing 2012 acres?

08/16/2011 - 08/25/2011

Just a few years ago, USDA's late-March planting intentions report kicked off what is now commonly known as the battle for acres. Now, the acreage battle for 2012 seems to already be underway before this year's crop is even in the bin. Last week, USDA released crop production and supply numbers that sent the grain markets shooting skyward.


And, the reports led many farmers to start looking ahead to next year's crop -- one that most say will have to be a bin-buster if the U.S. is to keep up with world grain demand.
