Record Volumes Traded on Mercaris Platform in First Half of 2017

In the first half of 2017, more than 370,000 bushels of organic, non-GMO, and transitional grains were traded on the Mercaris Auction Platform, more than tripling total 2016 quantities. Our platform continues to grow as buyers expand their markets and sellers find new sources of grain demand. Since the launch of the Mercaris Auction Platform, farmers, merchandisers, mills, processors and brokers have traded more than 650,000 bushels of organic, transitional, and non-GMO grains, with a total notional value of nearly $5 million.

To access prices and quality specifications of past auctions, or to buy or sell grain via the Mercaris platform, create a free account at www.mercaris.com, or contact our Director of Market Operations, Lizzie Ekeberg.
