Today we published our 2017 Organic & Non-GMO Acreage Report, which delves into national- and state-level estimated planted acreage figures for IP corn, wheat, soy, oats, alfalfa, and others. Overall findings include:

  • Total certified organic grain (corn, wheat, oats, soy) acreage increased more than 30% to 1.35 million acres.
  • 17,188 farms in the US were certified organic as of October 2017, a 15% increase from 2016.

In October, we completed our annual update and upgrade of the Asset Map. The Asset Map is an interactive, geospatial map tool of organic & non-GMO grain and oilseed handling facilities across North America. Each facility represented within the map is listed by operation type, product manufactured, and transportation options, and over a dozen filters enable you to tailor search terms to suit your needs.

The Mercaris team is currently at the Organic and Non-GMO Forum. The following day, on November 8, Kellee James is leading a session during the Organic Transition for Commercial-Scale Farms Workshop.

We are also attending the National Black Growers Council Annual Conference from December 10-13, Tunica, Mississippi.

Please reach out if you will be at either of these events--we'd love to see you!
