Wet, cool weather has delayed plantings of U.S. feed grains. As a result, USDA lowered its estimate of the 1995 corn crop by 700 million bushels to 7.9 billion. Historical relationships indicate that late plantings result in lower yields. Farmers likely will idle some corn acreage, or shift the acreage to soybeans or to other crops with a shorter growing season. The projected price range for corn for 1995/96 was raised 15 cents to $2.45 to $2.85 per bushel.
