I think trend will slow its upward move significantly. This will be because of where these additional acres are coming from. All these new acres are coming in inconsistent areas that will consistently pull down the national avg. new acres in missouri Kansas and the Dakota's are not the same as the traditional acres in Iowa Illinois and Indiana. I think you can see some proof of this when you compare your corn trend graph and your bean graph. Look how much more inconsistent then bean graph is and then remember the balance of soybeans on marginal acres.
