Corn Remains King in Wisconsin

This just in.     We now have a better idea of how Wisconsin farmers are using their cropland during the 2014 growing season. The USDA released its crop acreage report this week, which notes that the total number of soybean acres planted in the state is estimated at a record high 1.80 million, up 14 percent from last year, and three percent more than the March intentions. Area for harvest will also break the previous record by 80,000 acres, if realized. About 95-percent of Wisconsin's soybean acreage was planted with herbicide resistant GM seed.

About those GM seeds.
