The article presents the predictions of grain analyst Richard Brock on the corn market which were revealed at the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show in the U.S. in February 2011. Planted acreage, corn yield potential and feed and residual use are the factors, based on the belief of Brock, that must be considered in the year. Brock believes that feed and residual use will decrease in the year due to the Department of Agriculture's (DA) projection that there will be more corn being crushed for ethanol.
