Corn Farming in the US

Over the past decade, corn has become the cash crop of the 21st century. The crop's popularity has been facilitated by federal mandates for ethanol use that are designed to reduce the United States' foreign oil dependency. With rising demand, the adoption of genetic modification (GM) technology has helped farmers heighten yields. Furthermore, both domestic and global demand growth exceeded the rise in supply, resulting in price increases and improved profitability for growers. While industry revenue is expected to fall over the five years to 2019, the long-term future for corn farmers is expected to be positive, since demand is anticipated to keep growing as renewable energy targets rise each year. To meet this demand, farmers are using genetically modified (GM) seeds, pushing yields to levels three times higher than they were 50 years ago.
Operators in this industry primarily grow corn (except sweet corn) and produce corn seeds. Corn commonly refers to the grains or kernels of the tall annual cereal grass, Zea mays, and is a staple cereal in many parts of the world. In the United States, it is most commonly used as livestock feed and in the production of ethanol, sweeteners, oil and other products.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
