Farmers are still making decisions on a few acres. “With all of the issues going on with ethanol right now, corn is discouraging,” said Greg LaPlante, president, GL Crop Consulting. “Farmers may not plant as many acres as intended. It all depends on how things pencil out. If soybean prices rally up, acres could change.” LaPlante said fields look pretty good. “Picking up extra moisture could set us back on planting a few weeks. I don’t think people will be quite as enthused to late plant corn like they did last year.”
