Default Corn Price Guesstimate 2022

Listening to the Texas Ag Report this am. Guy on there mentioned that he previously spent about $120 to bring in an acre of corn ($90 of that was on fertilizer). States THIS year, it’s gonna be about $225 per acre ($180-$190 fertilizer). Nitrogen fertilizer costs up approx 200% per the report.

Whaddaya think a 50 lb sack of corn will be for Deer Season 2022???? ��

(Not to mention OUR food...)

Like every year. It’s going to depend on how much is exported, how much is planted and how many bushels per acre they yield. The buyer doesn’t care how much the farmer spends to produce it.

I am going to load up now from a local dealer with cash, and have them hold it for me. And pickup as I go. I got 46 bags there now at like $8.35.

Going to buy 100 more

Up here on Eastern Shore of Maryland some local farmers with grain silos sold bagged 50# for $7 to 8 this year up from $5 - 6 from couple years ago. but they have mentioned the above fertilizer doubling at least so was warming me up for the increase coming. Just can't get around it looks like my deer going on a diet. Also problem up here many spots the mature bucks don't like feeders so almost all pour on ground can't just turn feed time down. Deer here get all food they need anyways as we are surrounded with corn and soybeans within easy walkin distance of every deer on the Shore. Corn is just an attractant during the hunt season.
Seems like you have to train them for couple years so like the does bringing their fawns and yearling bucks to feeders so they get used to them as they mature. I know and seen pics of some guys with NICE Texas Feeders up here for years and some of their mature bucks still won't come near feeders. So looks like I better start training them now before I get too old to hunt, in 2028 it'll be BBD FOR SURE LOL BUT we got no hogs as they haven't swum the Chesapeake Bay yet or crossed the 20 miles of bridge and tunnels get over to us in the LAND OF PLEASANT LIVING either on their own or in back of a pickup by some DUMMY. Flocks of Turkeys are my biggest corn vulture problem but do like the spring chase so tolerate them. Coyote came in my immediate area over last 10-20 years but they came down from PA and didn't have to swim much. Better squirrel away (bury in the backyard) some extra cash for upcoming year.

It seems to differ by state. In Texarkana at the Texas side wallmart was 7.45 I believe. Arkansas side wallmart was just shy of 10$.

Fertilizer is at $1000 a ton…. And we ain’t even using it yet

Gly that was $30-$40 for 2.5 gallons last year is $120-$140…. Again, we ain’t even started using it yet

My guess is by late summer prices will be $30 cwt…. My best guess and fear

I’m already paying just under $17 a cwt for feed… and I get 2 semi truck loads a week!

Exactly. We’re still eating food planted and harvested at LAST year’s prices. It’s gonna be interesting when this year’s crops come in...

Don’t forget to add into it fuel for planting, spraying, harvesting, shipping, processing and bagging will be +/- $4 a gallon too…

It ain’t gonna be cheaper than it is now, if some are budgeting

Corn is selling for about $6 a bushel right now at the elevator. So by the time that bushel gets put in a sack and winds up on a Walmart shelf is up to the man.

Old Joe is too busy thinking of ways to start a war with Russia, and how to print more money for his voters (and “inflating” OUR money out from under us) to care ...

Fertilizer is up 340% from Jan 21’ and gly is up 220% from January. Fertilizer will drop between now and planting but not by a whole lot it seems. Rice input costs are going to be up 30-40% and I wouldnt be surprised if corn wasnt the same. The producer will bare some of the cost and the consumer will bare the majority. I said all that to say I wouldnt be surprised to see about a 30% increase unless fertilizer drops drastically. Seed went up as well….

Natural gas is higher then it has been in years. Also , a large ammonium nitrate plant may also be going off line which will drive fertilizer prices even higher.
