Record Corn Crop Predicted this Season

Posted: Updated:

The wet start to the corn planting season may reduce the amount each acre produces this year but farmers are still likely to bring in a record crop.

In a report released today Friday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated farmers would bring in 14 billion bushels of corn this season.

This is one-billion more than the previous record set in 2009.

Farmers are planting more than 97-million acres of corn this year. This means even an average yield would result in a record crop.
