of corn that averages 150 = 12 b total bu.
That kinda puts the 1.9 billion projected carry at a negative or -100 mill carry.
IF the crop were to yield 50+% better than the wet 1993 crop, That puts total bu in the 10.6 bu range ie 85 mill acres at 125 bu avg.
11 billion total may turn out respectable considering the year, or an approx. Negative or -1 billion carry.
Will IA raise 75% of a normal crop?.
Will MN raise 65% of a normal crop?
Will WI raise 55% of a normal crop?
Will MO raise 65% of a normal crop?
Will ND raise 25% of a normal crop?
The afore may not seem like much concerning the total down the road, but things are starting to Negative up so to speak.
Granted Nebraska gonna raise decent corn most likey.
Also the SE usa is in good shape.
With the poundings IL, IN have had they'll have ok corn perhaps, but their avg may not much to write home about, so to speak.
Beans? with all the pp on em they may not make 60 mill acres planted ( lotta folks are sick of waiting for dry, have thrown in the towel on planting ).

Nebraska will raise a crop, ONLY if the western 2/3's is allowed to pump enough water. ITs really really dry when you get west of Grand Island from what I have been told. so don't count on Nebraska's corn just yet,,,

In the US years ago there was a "rule of thumb" that said corn and bean prices should be in a 2.2 to 1 ratio( or around that ratio). Is there a price point where farmers switch in Brazil and Arg. Or is it based on what the export market is looking for ????
