This study provides a deep dive into the fundamentals of the emerging U.S. organic and non-GMO corn markets. Using original Mercaris analysis and research, and drawing from USDA reports, the study provides the most comprehensive estimate to the organic supply and demand balance and an updated estimate to organic corn acreage since the last USDA Economic Research Service acreage report from 2011. The study compares the different nuances of the organic corn market as compared to the conventional market in terms of production, net imports, end use, total supply/use balance, price analytics and storage economics. Use this analysis to gain a better understanding of the drivers of growth in organic corn demand and to understand the changing dynamics of the industry to inform strategic supply chain & market research based decisions.

To stay up to date on the recent trends in the organic and non-GMO corn markets, additional information is available via Mercaris. Both organic and non-GMO prices are published on a weekly or monthly basis and are available via the Mercaris Data Service, which displays food and feed prices for spot and forward transactions, across a number or regions and commercial grades. The Monthly Organic Imports Report provides regular updates to US import volumes and prices (FOB origin and delivered) by origin.
