This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Friday, March 30th. The grain market, corn in particular, gets a boost from the latest USDA report. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Joe Vaclavik.

VACLAVIK ... "Corn market was sharply higher here on Thursday following a bullish acreage report from the USDA. Today, the USDA released their annual perspective plantings and also a quarterly stocks report. The acreage number came in at 88-million and that was more than 2-million acres below last year and about a million-and-a-half below the average trade guess. So, the idea here of the thought that farmers will plant much less corn acreage this year. It was seen as a very, very friendly factor. December futures came within a half of their contract high which was posted earlier this month up at $412."
