The article discusses the factors which could influence the viability of the U.S. corn market for 2006. One factor is the involvement of the commodity and index funds. Another is the capability of farmers to turn out high corn yields under the harshest environmental conditions. However, increased usage of ethanol will not necessarily translate to higher prices for corn.
