2003 GM estimates [NYT]
soybean acreage: 80%, up from 75% last year.
corn: 38%, up from 34% last year.
cotton: 70%, down from 71% (difference is within the margin of error of the survey).

AgWeb has more details, from the USDA NASS March Agricultural Survey.

subsequent clarification: those are percentages of US total acreage. I.e., 80% of your transfat intake comes from GM soy. pass the crisco.
