Corn Production Forecast Down Again
09/12/2012

A new government report is forecasting a Kansas corn and soybean crop that could be the smallest harvest in the state since 2006. Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Wednesday that corn for grain production in Kansas is now expected to be 382.2 million bushels. That is down 2 percent from August and is 15 percent below last year. The estimate is based on an average yield of 91 bushels per acre from 4.2 million harvested acres. The new forecast pegs the soybean crop at 70.4 million bushels. That is down 5 percent from last month and down 31 percent from last year. Grain sorghum remained unchanged over last month with 88 million bushels, down 20 percent from last year.
