Corn Planted Acres by State

The USDA NASS makes a wealth of data available.   In fact, much of the historical data used to create the CropProphet corn, soybean, and winter wheat yield and production forecasts come from the USDA NASS.

As discussed in other posts about corn yield forecasting and US corn production,  corn production is a function of corn planted acres and yield.   In this post, we provide a history of the rankings of corn planted acres by state from 2000 to 2019.  In 2019,  89.5 million acres of corn were planted in the United States, as shown below.   Iowa corn planted acres totaled 13.5 million acres or 15% of the national total.
