ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report titled "Can Corn Keep Up," which found that key shifts in corn production are delaying yield growth. It notes that increased corn acres on less productive land and reduced crop rotation will not increase U.S. corn yield sufficient enough to move world grain stocks out of low levels. The reports cites the factors that fuel growth in yields year over year such as expansion of planted geographies, decreased crop rotation and increased density of plant populations.
