USDA: More soybean acres, fewer corn in 2017
Farmers across the country plan to increase their plantings of soybeans this spring and to cut back on corn, according to a new USDA Prospective Plantings report. The report projected Iowa's corn acreage at 13.3 million, down 4 percent from a year ago. The state's soybean acreage was pegged at 10.1 million, up 6 percent from 2016. Analysts say that a relatively stronger soybean market, and a push to reduce costs, is behind the soybean surge.
