Going into this planting season, USDA forecast U.S. corn acreage at 97 million acres. The uptick in acres won’t be coming from North Dakota. “North Dakota is going to be very, very light on corn acres for several reasons; wet conditions, the price of corn and COVID didn’t help,” said Tommy Grisafi, risk management advisor, Advance Trading. “I think people from other states might think they’re just not planting it because of price and that’s 100 percent not true. There is just a ton of fields that can’t get planted; there’s people that grow wheat and barley that can’t get it planted.” #BOOTS20
