Pro Farmer sees rise in 2021 US planted crop acres


Pro Farmer, a division of Farm Journal Media, expects total area planted to crops in the US to rise to 319.4 million acres this year, up 8.9 million acres (2.9%) from last year and the highest since 2018, based on the results of the annual Pro Farmer/Doane planting intentions survey.


Stronger prices and improved farm financial conditions are expected to bring more US acres into production. The survey signaled there will be big increases in corn and soybean acres this year, given the sharp rise in prices. Pro Farmer projects total US corn and soybean plantings at a record 182.3 million acres, which would be up 8.4 million acres (4.8%) from last year.


Total acres planted to the big four crops (corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton) are expected to rise 9.5 million acres (4.1%) from last year.
