USDA still expecting record Nebraska corn crop


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)--The latest federal forecast shows no change in expectations for a record Nebraska corn crop.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that, based on Nov. 1 conditions, the corn crop should hit 1.58 billion bushels--14 percent higher than last year's 1.39 billion bushels.

The Nebraska corn crop record was set in 2007--1.47 billion bushels; the 2009 forecast exceeds that by 8 percent.

The yield is forecast at a record 178 bushels an acre, which would be 12 bushels higher than the Nebraska high mark set in 2004.

Soybean production is forecast at 247 million bushels--9 percent higher than last year and the second-highest on record. Yield is forecast at 52 bushels at acre. That's a bushel higher than the record set in 2007.
