Wet =More bean acres..Not so fast

The markets general consciences is that with the wet spring that corn acres will just automatically flow to beans.....

One has to ponder a lot of different things as we move forward..... There will no question that there will be acres that will just not get planted....... Last yr was a rare yr when every acre that was intended to get planted got planted....... Double crop beans are going to be a LOT later as the wheat will not come off nearly as early as last yr...... What that means is anybodies guess for sure.  A lot will also depend on price..... If the market keeps going lower there will be less incentive to get things in late..... Take prevent plant instead....... In summery.... Lots of trading to go as we move forward....... p-oed

This information is worth what you payed for it...... :~)

PP corn should net more than average crop of beans

That's probably true 425, but who wants to make a living off insurance? It definitely is an option, but I would rather plant, grow, and harvest.
