Pro Farmer Consultant Dr. Michael Cordonnier has raised his Brazilian corn estimate due to indications farmers have planted more safrinha (second crop) corn acres than previously expected. He also notes that weather has been generally favorable. Dr. Cordonnier made no other changes to his South American crop estimates this week.
