The article discusses trends in the U.S. corn production and demand. Exports of U.S. corn have declined significantly in October and November 2012. The production of ethanol has also slowed down. It is predicted that total corn exports for 2012-2013 could decline below the 1-billion-bushel mark. Some analysts are also expecting that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will revise its export figure in its December 2012 report.
