NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I was talking with Jim Cramer today about corn prices, which have had a recent drop, falling on a very bearish crop report on Friday. While this puts corn prices again under $7 a bushel, I don't believe this represents the start of a new bear market in corn. In fact, I'm more apt to buy.Corn has been the victim of a horrific drought that brought prices to a screaming high above $8 a bushel late last year. While the effects of the drought continue, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has reported that a record crop of corn has been planted. Whether that record crop will see itself to harvest is a great question, as well as what we know are increasing demand profiles all around the world.
