Max Armstrong talks about the focus on what will happen for corn and soybean acreage. Will soybean acreage surpass corn? The last time that happened was 35 years ago, and back then it was the Payment in Kind program that turned the tables on corn and soybean plantings. It looks like soybeans could get more acres in 2018.
