USDA Organic Commodity Prices

Taking USDA Organic Commodity Prices Data To The Next Level

The USDA releases a bi-weekly National Organic Grain and Feedstuffs Report which reports on grower FOB farm gate food grade and feed grade organic grain bids for spot, forward, and cash contracts. Mercaris then offers comparisons between its own weekly pricing information, USDA and CME information.

In addition, Mercaris publishes the most timely and accurate pricing information through its Market Survey, the most comprehensive and largest organic and non-GMO data set available to date. Dozens of first purchasers of premium organic and non-GMO grains participate, encompassing more than 8-12 percent of the total domestic organic and non-GMO market.
