This marks the fifth year in the last seven when season-average prices are likely to be below the $2 level. U.S. corn growers planted 81 million acres in 2004, the largest since 1985. They harvested 73.3 million acres, also the largest since 1985. The work of plant breeders came to fruition this past year, with a record 11.74 billion-bushel crop and total supplies of 12.7 billion bushels, also a record.
