Prospective planting report shows more soybeans


The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Prospective Plantings Report showed a record number of soybean acres will go in the ground this year.

Shelby Myers, an economist with the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), said the Prospective Planting Report gives a good first look at what crops farmers intend to plant.

"USDA publishes an annual survey-based Prospective Plantings Report that's always released on March 31," Myers said. "This is really the first look at what U.S. farmers intend to plant given that they reply to this survey. We do a quick rundown of principal crops for U.S. farmers and, right now, we've got some good news overall."

Myers noted more soybeans and less corn will be planted.
