The U.S. had 10 million acres of prevent plant last year. NAU Country Insurance Vice President of Farm Services Rich Morrison thinks there’s a good chance most of those acres will get planted in the spring. “USDA added four million acres to the soybeans from last year. They didn’t add hardly anything for corn, but they did add one million acres for wheat,” says Morrison. “In the big picture, I think they were being on the conservative side and not forecasting the majority of acres to come back into production. I think they’re leaving themselves a little bit of play in numbers. Most of us analysts think most of the acres will come back into production.”
