The U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service’s report on corn and soy prices showed declining monthly prices in September, but a continuing trend of improving yearlong prices may be a silver lining.
In Sept. 2021, the price of corn decreased to $5.60 per bushel from $6.38 in August, but the 12-month average price saw an increase from August, up to $5.15, according to the report.
Soybean prices did the same, decreasing to $12.30 per bushel in Sept. 2021, compared to $13.70 in August, but showing a 12-month average of $12.64, also above August’s.
