Farmers are expected to plant a record number of soybean acres in 2015, at the expense of corn. Although both crops have seen a fall in price, corn has experienced a sharper decline. Estimated corn planted acreage dropped 2% from last year, marking the third consecutive decline in planted acres for corn. Combined corn and soybean acreage was 173.8 million, an increase of 0.5 million acres from the final 2014 total.
