Corn and soybeans are trading down on the first day of the week as investors are digesting USDA reports on planting and emerging armyworm findings in China.

However, the US government said that farmers planted more corn than expected by market watchers.

“I think the USDA is sending the message that corn acres got planted – regardless of what some of these farmers up here in the Midwest see outside their kitchen windows,” Karl Setzer, market analyst for Agrivisor, said to Reuters in a recent note.

Nevertheless, the United States Department of Agriculture reported that corn planting progress was below average the whole spring.

According to the USDA annual acreage report, farmers seeded 91.7 million of acres of corn and 80 million acres of soybeans, well-below of government forecast of 92.8 million corn acres and 84.6 million acres of soybeans.

With all that information, crops chief at the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service Lance Honig tweeted that the agency will resurvey data in 14 states now and it will release another report on August 12.
