On November 9th USDA chimed in with their latest crop production report. In a surprise move, which shocked the market the USDA raised 2017/2018-corn production to 14.58 billion bushels. This was on a projected yield of 175.4 bushels per acre, which was up from its October estimate of 171.8 bushels per acre. This was outside any pre-report estimates on the high side and the market responded accordingly by falling seven cents on the day. If this yield comes to fruition, it will be the largest US domestic corn yield in history. US domestic corn stocks are projected to increase to 2.49 billion bushels, a very onerous figure headed into next year.
