The 34-page planting intentions report, by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), Agricultural Statistics Board, U.S. Department of Agriculture, was released on March 30, 2007.
Producers were surveyed about their intentions for 2007 during the first two weeks of March. Although changes can still occur, this is the best estimate of expected acreage. Changes can take place though with the possibility of planned corn acreage shifting back to soybean depending on soybean prices and if conditions are wet and unfavorable for corn planting. Yet many producers have already prepared the fields and purchased the inputs necessary for corn production.
