A recent survey by Farm Futures magazine revealed that farmers are unsure if they will increase corn acreage next spring, but they do plan to boost soybean and wheat seedings.
Farmers plan to put in 93.1 million acres of corn in the year ahead, down 4 percent from 2012, when they planted the most corn in 75 years.
Growers said they want to seed 78.1 million soybean acres next spring, up 1.2 percent from this year's total. Wheat acreage would also rise next year, up 1.8 percent and reaching 57 million acres.
The 2013 planting intentions survey results reflect the plans of 1,800 farmers.
