The article focuses on the competition between the demand of corn and soybean in the U.S. for the year 2009. It notes that an average of 79 million acres of corn was planted in the U.S. from 2001 to 2006, and that high percentage of increase was remarked in the succeeding years. However, soybeans showed a decrease in its demand, having it replaced by farmers by planting corns instead. Charts and diagrams which concluded the results of the issue are included.
