2012 corn planted is estimated at 96.4M acres, says the USDA, +5% Y/Y and the highest planted acreage since 1937. Soybeans are estimated at 76.1M acres, the 3rd highest on record. Though both figures are higher than trade expectations, planted acres are not the same as harvested acres, and the drought continues. Corn and beans are sharply higher in early trade.
