Corn planting delays consistent with 2019, economists reports discourage plant scenarios

With only 14% of the country’s corn being planted in early May, the option of crop avoidance has been considered.

Ag economist Gary Schnitkey of the University of Illinois tells Brownfield that corn-growing progress is behind 2019 — a year in which many acres were never planted.

“We had planted 7% of the corn fields in Illinois on May 1stSt of this year and on May 5, 2019, 10% were planted. The big one, however, is Iowa, which has planted 9% so far in 2022, compared to 36% in 2019.”

But Schnitkey says market signals make this year’s crop prevention scenario very different from 2019. He says their planting decision module shows that planting corn in central Illinois shortly after the final planting date for crop insurance is still more profitable than paying a payment to prevent planting in fall bids are higher than the price projected for 2022 from $5.90.

“In 2019 it was exactly the opposite. We looked at commodity prices that were down all year and we had a trade war going on at the time. This year, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has led to a shortage of grain supplies.”

Also, he says there is still time to get corn into the ground before the final planting date as planting can progress quickly with suitable field days in May. However, he reckons preventing crops will be a choice some farmers will have to make.

“In the Midwest, farmers will likely face a choice to discourage crops. Hopefully not as broad as 2019 but some areas will do.”

According to Schnitkey, farmers can use their downtime to calculate how many acres are eligible for plant prevention and use the farmdoc Planting Decision Module to look at specific scenarios for their area.
