DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The USDA reports that farmers intend to plant 97.3 million acres of corn this year, the most since 1936.

<br><br>

The spring planting survey released Thursday says the 2013 corn planting forecast is up slightly from last year's 97.2 million acres.

<br><br>

Corn remains profitable, as prices are strong after last year's drought left the grain in short supply.

<br><br>

Record corn acreage is expected in Arizona, Idaho, Minnesota, Nevada, North Dakota, and Oregon.

<br><br>

But some Corn Belt states will continue to be affected by the worst drought since the 1950s, with slightly less planted acreage expected.

<br><br>

The report says farmers plan to plant 77.1 million acres in soybeans, down slightly from 2012's 77.2 million acres but still the fourth-highest soybean planting on record.
