The article presents information about U.S. corn market. Strong demand for U.S. corn is helping steady the market despite projections for burdensome supplies at year's end. According to Darrel Good, Extension economist, University of Illinois, speaking at the Ag Market Network's November teleconference he said demand is not strong enough to offset the surplus supplies--which come on the heels of record U.S. production--but is strong enough to warrant the need for a large crop in the coming year.
