USDA says farmers intend to plant 97 million acres of corn in 2020. As COVID-19 acts as an anchor on the markets, and the ethanol crisis continues to unfold, some analysts say 97 million acres could be a stretch.
The EPA announced a method for conducting biological evaluations to assure pesticide registration review actions under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) do not jeopardize endangered species.
With a large increase in corn acres, and declining ethanol demand, the U.S. could be swimming in supplies. That’s why one analyst thinks there's downside price risk with putting corn in the ground this year.
