Mercaris 2013 Annual
Organic & Non-GMO Market Report

Our first-ever Annual Market Report provides a summary of price and trade data collected during 2013 on non-GMO corn, non-GMO soybeans, organic corn, organic soybeans and organic wheat.

We make our price and trade reports available on an ongoing basis to our subscribers throughout the year; however, our Annual Market Report is a broad stroke review of the entire year of data and provides additional analysis for several data points not yet available on our 

Below is an excerpt from the reports analysis on the U.S. organic corn market:

Overall, organic feed corn showed a marked decrease over the full year, with much of the Midwest corn-growing region recovered/recovering from severe drought experienced in 2012. From a volume-weighted January price of $15.29/bushel to a December price of $11.50/bushel, organic feed corn finished the year nearly 25% lower than it began.

Are you interested in knowing which countries were the top exporters of organic corn, wheat, and soybeans to the U.S. last year? The average prices for non-GMO corn and soybeans? The 2013 average price for organic hard red winter wheat? 

Our Annual Market Report is now available to our Silver Level and above subscribers, or by request for $150. For subscription information, click here.
