More rain is starting to materialize in the eastern Corn Belt with the potential for more planting delays. Martinson Ag Risk Management market analyst Randy Martinson says corn planting is likely complete and there is concern about planting soybeans. “I think the grain markets will remain strong until we see where acres could fall.” Martinson says South Dakota is in the mix along with states in the eastern Corn Belt. “It’s forecast somewhere between 40 to 50 percent of South Dakota will be prevent plant. There may be some cover crops planted later on,” says Martinson. “At this point, it looks like it could be tough for them to see much planted for corn and soybeans. It’s a similar scenario in other states like Ohio.”
