US - US-based research and brokerage firm Allendale Inc. estimates the following 2013 acreage based on its 24th annual producer survey, which had a record response with 33 states represented.


Corn planting intentions of 96.956 million acres would be the second largest since 1937 when 97.174 million acres were planted (after 2012’s 97.155). Using Allendale Inc.’s estimate of harvested acreage, and our 156.97 bushel/acre trend yield, it would imply record production of 13.912 billion bushels. Last year’s production was 10.780 billion bushels.

Soybean planting intentions are seen at 78.324 million acres. This would be record soybean plantings. Using Allendale Inc.’s estimate of harvested acreage, and our 43.35 bushel/acre trend yield, it would imply production of 3.349 billion bushels. This production would be the second highest on record. Last year’s production was 3.015 billion bushels.

Wheat acreage is estimated at 56.261 million acres. Winter wheat acreage was seen 209,000 larger than that implied by USDA’s winter wheat seedings report. Using Allendale Inc.’s harvested acreage, and 45.20 bushel/acre trend yield, it would imply production of 2.204 billion bushels. This is below last year’s 2.269 billion bushel production.
