Winter wheat acreage is down, especially along the Mississippi River corridor, says Peter Peerbolte, Bayer CropScience Portfolio Manager for cereals. Record rainfalls last fall in the MidSouth and Delta took growers out of the wheat game. Peerbolte says spring wheat acreage could be up a tad, but those regions are heading into the planting season wet and with 2009 harvest still to come out.
"We could see spring wheat plantings in the 17 million to 17.5 million acre range," he says. Bayer CropScience has three new wheat products this season. Listen in as Peerbolte tells us his outlook for 2010.
