Gerry Bange, U.S. Department of Agriculture Outlook Chairman, said information coming from Brazil shows that the country has a very strong corn crop while U.S. farmers and ranchers are dealing with the drought that hurt the U.S. corn production.
Argentina is also expected to produce a 28.5 percent bigger corn crop this season.
The U.S. is expected to export 42 percent fewer bushels this year.
As a result, Gary Crawford of the USDA reports that the USDA has taken 20 percent off of the U.S. corn price forecast; however, the estimate of $7.20 a bushel is still over 16 percent higher than a year ago.
