Minnesota Corn Planting On Record Pace

| No Comments

Farmers in Minnesota show signs of planting a record acreage of corn this year.

Corn crops will cover an estimated 8.7 acres, which is up 7 percent from last year, reported The Startribune.

The Startribune also reported that the rise in the corn crop has lead to a 3 percent decrease in expected soybean acreage.

This shift in crop distribution has forced the expected acreage of spring wheat acres to fall 10 percent, reported The Pioneer Press.
