Across the Midwest, we expect to see an increase in acreage planted to corn over previous years because of the demand for grain from several markets, including livestock and ethanol. In addition to these market-driven factors is the uncertainty surrounding soybean production, including possible increased management costs for disease protection. The effectiveness of a corn-soybean rotation in controlling corn rootworm also has been reduced, lessening the incentive to rotate crops.
