US Corn & wheat planted area
USDA, June 30, 2004
Corn planted area for all purposes is estimated at 81.0 million acres, up 3 percent from both 2002 and 2003. Growers expect to harvest 73.4 million acres for grain, up 3 percent from 2003. Farmers increased corn plantings 1.96 million acres from their March intentions. Planting conditions during April and May across much of the Corn Belt were near ideal. Above-normal temperatures and light rainfall allowed planting to progress well ahead of the normal pace. Similar conditions were experienced in the northern and central Great Plains. However, planting progress slowed after mid-May as heavy rains fell in many areas of the Corn Belt. Growers in Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin experienced the most rainfall which prevented them from planting some of their acres originally intended for corn. Farmers reported that 98 percent of the corn acreage had been planted at the time of the survey interview, which is 1 percentage point above the average for the past 10 years.

All wheat planted area is estimated at 59.9 million acres, down 3 percent from 2003. Harvested area is expected to total 50.7 million acres, down 4 percent from last year. The 2004 winter wheat planted area, at 43.5 million acres, is 3 percent below last year, but up fractionally from the previous estimate. Of this total, about 31.0 million acres are Hard Red Winter, 8.3 million acres Soft Red Winter, and 4.2 million acres White Winter. Acreage planted to other spring wheat for 2004 is estimated at 13.7 million, down 1 percent from 2003. Of this total, about 12.9 million acres are Hard Red Spring wheat. The Durum planted area for 2004 is estimated at 2.74 million acres, down 6 percent from last year.
