USDA forecasts record-high corn production in 2013 U.S. corn growers are expected to produce a recordhigh 13.8 billion bushels of corn in 2013, according to the Crop Production report issued today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The forecast production is up 28 percent from drought-hit 2012. The early planting season was not very favorable for corn growers this year, as they were hampered by abnormally wet and cold spring weather. By April 28, only 5 percent of corn had been planted. In mid-May, however, the weather became more favorable, allowing producers to speed up their planting pace and tie the previous singleweek planting record by getting 43 percent of the total crop in the ground during the week ending on May 19. U.S. growers wrapped up planting corn by midJune, with 97.4 million acres planted to the crop. Also, with 64 percent of U.S. corn crop rated in good to excellent condition as of August 4, corn crop condition remains significantly higher than at this time last year. Based on these conditions, NASS forecasts this year's corn yield at 154.4 bushels per acre, the thirdhighest yield on record. U.S. soybean production is forecast at 3.26 billion bushels in 2013, up 8 percent from last year. NASS forecasts 76.4 million acres of soybeans for harvest this year. If realized, this will be the second largest harvested acreage on record. Similar to corn growers, soybean producers were hampered by the unfavorable weather during the planting season. Planting of this year's soybean crop wasn't under way in all 18 major soybean-growing states until mid-May. Improved weather in June allowed soybean growers to speed up their planting, and by June 30, growers had 96 percent of the crop in the ground. Based on August 1 conditions, soybean yields are expected to average 42.6 bushels per acre, up 3 bushels from 2012. The report also included the first production forecast for U.S. cotton. NASS forecasts all cotton production at 13.1 million 480pound bales, down 25 percent from last year. Yield is expected to average 813 pounds per harvested acre, down 74 pounds from last year. Wheat production is forecast down from 2012. According to the report, all wheat production is expected to total 2.11 billion bushels this year, down 7 percent from 2012. Based on August 1 conditions, NASS forecasts the allwheat yield at 46.2 bushels per acre, down slightly from last year. NASS interviewed more than 24,000 producers across the country in preparation for this report. The agency also conducted field and lab measurements on corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton in the major producing states, which usually account for about 75 percent of the U.S. production. NASS is also gearing up to conduct its September Agricultural Survey, which will focus on In the 10-12-year-old bucket calf category at the Geary County Free Fair, Lindsey Ascher was awarded grand champion. The Geary County Free Fair reserve champion bucket calf in the 7-9-year-old category was awarded to Elijah Schmidt.
