|Note: Totals may not add due to rounding. 1/ Marketing year beginning September 1 for corn and sorghum; June 1 for barley and oats. 2/ For a breakout of FSI corn uses, see Feed Outlook table 5 or access the data on the Web through the Feed Grains Database at www.ers.usda.gov/data-products/feed-grains-database.aspx. 3/ Corn processed in ethanol plants to produce ethanol and by-products including distillers' grains, corn gluten feed, corn gluten meal, and corn oil. 4/ Marketing-year weighted average price received by farmers. * Planted acres reported in the March 29, 2018, "Prospective Plantings." For corn, harvested acres projected based on historical abandonment and use for silage. The yield projection is based on a weather-adjusted trend assuming normal mid-May planting progress and summer growing season weather, estimated using the 1988-2017 time period, and includes a downward stochastic adjustment to account for the asymmetric response of yield to July precipitation. (For an explanation of the yield trend model see Westcott and Jewison, Weather Effects on Expected Corn and Soybean Yields, USDA-ERS, Feed Outlook No. (FDS-13G-01), July 2013, https://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/pub-details/?pubid=36652.)|

Harvested acres are based on the 5-year planted-to-harvested ratio. The projected yield is based on a weather-adjusted trend model and assumes normal weather.|
