Farmers had corn planters in overdrive last week trying to take advantage of the phenomenal spring weather. Corn planting estimates flew past the five-year average reporting over a 30% increase in acres planted from last week. Corn emergence still lags the five-year average but is expected to pick up after the large gains being made in planting. Farmers who completed their corn planting did not skip a beat and moved right to soybeans.
