Latest crop production data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show that corn-planted area estimates remain unchanged at 35.2 million hectare, 5% higher than last year, as reported in the weeklytimesnow.com.

Wheat production is predicted to increase by 2.8 million metric tons to 659.3 million metric tons.
