U.S. Corn-Seed Supply Sufficient for Planting, Industry Says

Farmers in the U.S., the world’s largest corn grower and exporter, have enough seeds to plant this year, according to the Iowa Corn Promotion Board, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Monsanto Co.

“We have not heard of anything that shows there’s any kind of seed-supply problem at all,” Kevin Rempp, the Iowa Corn Promotion Board’s vice chairman, said today in a telephone interview from Johnston, Iowa. The state is the nation’s largest producer. “The only way acreage will not be planted will be weather issues.”
