The 3-million-acre decline for corn, in a June report, is something we don’t see very often. A 10-bushel-per-acre drop in the June report is even more rare.

Is the USDA foreshadowing? Are they trying to prepare the market for a shock in regard to acres and yield expectations for this year’s crop?

Across the U.S., there are approximately 15 million corn acres that were not planted as of Sunday, June 10.

Soybean planting progress was reported at 60%. This suggests we still have approximately 33 million acres of soybeans that need to be planted.
