Increase expected in U.S. soybean acres

A shift to more soybean acres being planted is expected for the 2014 planting season.

“While both corn and soybean commodity prices have slipped in recent months, there seems to be a bit more strength with soybeans, thus pushing farmers to produce more soybeans,” said Iowa State University Extension field agronomist Mark Licht.

“Additionally, the last two years have been pretty stressful on corn following corn acres. Both corn and soybean yields have suffered the last two years, but there was a greater corn yield penalty with corn following corn versus corn following soybean the last two years,” he said.
