Market Advisor: How will the corn market deal with crop quality concerns?FARGO - The slow pace of U.S. corn planting, crop development and harvest progress has created varying degrees of uncertainty in the corn market since last April. The relatively cool, wet summer growing conditions limited the amount of stress the crop was exposed to and built expectations for a record national average corn yield and potentially a new record for total corn production. However, will these expectations be met? Both private forecasters and the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates seem to be changing every day.
