Too Much Corn
Thanks to the rise in ethanol use more and more corn is being planted, as has been mentioned here before.
The Times- Standard had this story on the subject in their business section this morning, although I couldn't find a link to it on their web page. Hard for me to make heads or tails out of this. Some seem to be suggesting that increasing demand (coupled with more acreage planted with corn) will cause prices for corn to drop. Hmmm???
This story in the Sacramento Bee says that corn prices are at an all time high, yet not high enough for most farmers to plant corn for conversion to ethanol. Then again, it also says prices are high enough for ranchers and such to grow corn to reduce feed costs. Hmmm???
As much as I like corn, I hate to see it taking up more and more farm space. It's not the best thing to grow in regards soil health.
