Farmers to plant record low wheat acres most soybeans ever

The Agriculture Department says in its prospective plantings report that it expects Minnesota farmers to seed 1.3 million acres of spring wheat, down 20,000 acres from a year ago.

"For corn producers, in particular, recognize that corn prices are low and they're cheap, because we have big supplies, but when you start subtracting some acreage, reduce yield or both, those numbers shift quite dramatically on the carryout expectations", said Doherty on U.S. Farm Report this weekend.

Soybean acreage is projected to jump to a record-high 89.5 million acres in 2017, with South Dakota's acreage set to rise by 4 percent. Corn acres in OH are expected to remain flat.

Minnesota's oat, barley, sugar beet and sunflower crops all are expected to be smaller this year. Flaxseed production is also set for a large reduction in acreage, with only 3,000 acres expected compared to 10,000 acres planted in 2016.

The USDA said soybeans in storage totalled almost 1.74 billion bushels as of March 1, up 13 percent from a year ago.

In Nebraska, prospective soybean planted acres is estimated at 5.7 million acres, an increase from 5.2 million in 2016 and 5.3 million in 2015. Oil type varieties account for 45,000 acres, up 55 percent from a year ago.
