Report Says Michigan Farmers Are Planting Less Corn
The Detroit News is reporting that weather and falling market prices caused farmers to start growing corn later than usual this year in the state of Michigan. The report also says that Michigan's corn farming area has shrunk by about 10,000 acres to 2.24 million this year. American farmers planted 91.6 million acres of corn nationally this year and that's down about 4 percent from last year.
But there is some good news here, too! Some analysts are forecasting that corn growers will still produce a solid crop despite the change in acreage. To find out more, click here.
