Corn Planted Acreage Up 3 Percent from 2009
Soybean Acreage Up Less Than 1 Percent
All Wheat Acreage Down 9 Percent
All Cotton Acreage Up 15 Percent

Corn growers intend to plant 88.8 million acres of corn for all purposes in
2010, up 3 percent from both last year and 2008. Expected acreage is up in
many States due to reduced winter wheat acreage and expectations of improved
net returns. Acreage increases of 300,000 or more are expected in Illinois,
Kansas, Missouri, and Ohio. The largest decreases are expected in Iowa, down
200,000 acres, and Texas, down 150,000 acres.

Soybean producers intend to plant 78.1 million acres in 2010, up less than
1 percent from last year. If realized, the United States planted area will be
the largest on record. Acreage increases of 100,000 or more are expected in
Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. The largest
decreases are expected in Georgia and North Carolina, both 150,000 acres less
than 2009. If intentions are realized, the planted acreage in Kansas, North
Dakota, and Pennsylvania will be the largest on record.

All wheat planted area is estimated at 53.8 million acres, down 9 percent
from 2009. The 2010 winter wheat planted area, at 37.7 million acres, is
13 percent below last year but up 2 percent from the previous estimate. Of
this total, about 28.3 million acres are Hard Red Winter, 6.0 million acres
are Soft Red Winter, and 3.4 million acres are White Winter. Area planted to
other spring wheat for 2010 is estimated at 13.9 million acres, up 5 percent
from 2009. Of this total, about 13.3 million acres are Hard Red Spring wheat.
Durum planted area for 2010 is estimated at 2.22 million acres, down
13 percent from the previous year.

All cotton plantings for 2010 are expected to total 10.5 million acres, 15
percent above last year. Upland acreage is expected to total 10.3 million
acres, up 15 percent. Growers intend to increase planted area in all States
except Arkansas, Kansas, and Louisiana. The largest acreage increase is in
Texas where producers intend to plant 600,000 acres more acres of upland
cotton than in 2009. American-Pima cotton growers intend to increase their
plantings by 34 percent from 2009 to 190,000 acres. California producers
intend to plant 165,000 acres, up 39 percent from last year.

Re: USDA Prospective Plantings

summary

The March USDA Grain Stocks Reports is considered negative for corn and soybean prices. Early calls: Corn down 5-8 cents and soybeans down 10-15 cents. The grain stocks report shows corn usage below expectations which suggests lower feed usage and slower exports of corn. The soybean stocks number is difficult to understand at the first viewing; The positive side is the acreage, in which corn came in about 400,000 acres below trade estimates as did soybeans. Where did it go? ...Probably to more cotton and spring wheat and specialty crops. We will provide a more extended analysis in this afternoon’s update.


Keep in mind that the acreage surveys were taken in early March ahead of the recent warm dry weather. I can see corn acres going up and soybeans down if the current pattern holds.


Where prices close today is more important than where prices open. A higher close with prices closing above the opening can signal a short term low. We are in the ideal time for a low in the corn and soybean markets.

With this said I hope that prices go up
