The wet start to the corn planting season may reduce the amount each acre produces this year, but farmers are planting so much corn they’re still likely to bring in a record crop. In a report released Friday, the US Department of Agriculture estimated farmers would bring in 14.1 billion bushels of corn this year, a billion bushels more than the previous record set in 2009. The USDA expects farmers to grow an average of 158 bushels per acre, a 3.4-percent reduction from the February forecast due to delayed planting. US Farmers are planting more than 97-million acres of corn, however, the most since 1936. That’s why even an average yield would result in a record crop.
