Kansas Farmers To Plant More Corn

KSCB News - April 1, 2011 8:15 am

A new government report shows Kansas
farmers expect to plant more acres in corn this spring than in any
year since 1936.
The Agricultural Statistics Service reported Thursday growers
plan to seed 5.1 million corn acres this year, up 5 percent from
last year.
The forecast means growers are seeding more corn and soybeans
combined than winter wheat.
The agency also forecast soybean acreage to reach 4 million
acres. Although down 7 percent from a year ago, it would still be
the second largest soybean acreage in Kansas history.
Sorghum plantings in Kansas were predicted at 2.5 million acres
– the most in the country and a 6 percent increase from last year.
About 132,000 acres of sunflowers are also anticipated to be
seeded.
