Wheat, corn and soybean futures popped Thursday following a bullish Department of Agriculture crop report.

Wheat prices for May delivery jumped 5.1% to $7.64 a bushel and corn for May delivery hit its daily exchange limit of 30 cents. Corn futures rose 4.5% to $6.93 ΒΌ a bushel. May soybeans added 3% at $14.13 1/4 a bushel.

The Department of Agriculture said on Thursday that soaring crop prices should encourage U.S. farmers to plant more corn and wheat this year than expected. The report estimates farmers will likely plant 92.2 million acres of corn, up 5% from the previous year -- greater than the market estimate of 91.7 million acres, according to online trade publication Agriculture.com.
