Producers plan for more corn, less cotton
Corn is the anticipated biggest winner and cotton the biggest loser as Mississippi producers shuffle commodity acres to take advantage of market conditions.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture released its prospective plantings report March 28. In it, the state’s corn acreage is predicted to reach 1.05 million acres, a 28 percent increase from the 820,000 acres planted in 2012. Cotton is expected to drop to 270,000 acres, a 43 percent decrease from last year. Soybean acreage remains relatively unchanged, and this commodity continues to command the largest portion of the state’s row-crop acreage.
