This study provides a deep dive into the fundamentals of the emerging U.S. organic and non-GMO soybean 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 soybean acreage since the last USDA Economic Research Service acreage report from 2011. The study compares the different nuances of the organic soybean 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 soybean demand and to understand the changing dynamics of the industry to inform strategic supply chain & market research based decisions.
