Any guesses on a number this afternoon?
Any guesses on when anyone in Chicago will care?
Any guesses on the amount of corn acres that really get planted?
The planting window continues to close little by little every day.
The markets are telling us that if we lose acres in the US, it really won't matter.
Are the markets wrong? Or just overly cautious?
Can we just add another 400 million bushels of corn on paper and make everyone feel better?

Morning all -- May guess will be 9% planted -- seen where Shaggy put in 100 acres so am sure that will effect the markets today .
With the big SA crop -- No worry's !
Looks like NO corn in my area wil make it in -- in April -- That may be a first . IF we would miss rain on tuesday then a chance to go by weekend .
As Bucky said -- No worries till we hit May and nothing planted .

Oh we care in Chicago, but we just see reality. Ultimately, South America will get their inventories out to their customers and the US Farmer will plant their crop, later . Will the price stay as high, probably not. But, do agree that if we have a string of 90+ weeks in the summer we can hit higher prices.
