U.S. corn farmers showed resilience in 2019 with a national average yield of 10.6 metric tons per hectare and 348 million metric tons of corn produced in the United States while facing a myriad of weather-related challenges.
To highlight these achievements to audiences more familiar with metric measurements, such as buyers in export markets, the National Corn Growers Association now offers the option to view the World of Corn in either metric or standard measurements on www.worldofcorn.com.
World of Corn is a respected collection of the most important statistics about corn production, exports and consumption, providing key information in a readable format, comparing numbers and trends across the years.
This year’s publication was generously sponsored by Bayer, and the print edition distributed through The Progressive Farmer.
U.S. Corn farmers are committed to continuous improvement in the production of corn, a versatile crop providing abundant high-quality food, feed, renewable energy, biobased products, and ecosystem services.
Corn ethanol is critical for a sustainable, clean energy future.
