Corn Price OutlookCorn prices have lost further ground over the last month due to ample supply, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) revising up its 2017/2018 forecasts for U.S. production and inventories. If production meets the forecast, the country would record a bumper crop, with the third-highest output in history. Corn traded at USD 314 cents per bushel on 6 October. The price was down 3.1% from the same day of last month and was 6.8% lower on a year-to-date basis. However, the price was up 0.3% from the same day last year. Looking ahead, corn prices should rise from their current low level, as a poor outlook for profits should encourage some producers to switch to more profitable crops, dampening global supply. Output is set to fall in major producers such as Argentina, Brazil and the EU, which should lend support to prices.
