Corn - Production and Exports

PrintEmail
Corn Production Map - United States

Although corn (or maize, as it's known throughout much of the world) has the honor of being grown in nearly all fifty states, its production is primarily concentrated in the northern and Midwestern states—collectively known as the U.S. Corn Belt. In the 2012/2013 crop marketing year, (Sept. 1-Aug. 31) the United States grew nearly 10.8 billion bushels (273.8 million metric tons) of corn and roughly 7 percent of production was exported to more than 100 different countries. Among them, Japan (37 percent), Mexico (24 percent), and China (13 percent) comprise the bulk of U.S. corn destinations. The 2012/2013 corn marketing year was marked by a tight supply of U.S. corn due a severe drought in the corn belt. Some top markets for U.S. corn were forced to diversify sourcing to meet demands, which allowed Brazil (26 percent) and Argentina (23 percent) to become top world exporters ahead of the United States (18 percent).
