Production and Exports

Although corn (or maize, as it’s known throughout much of the world) is grown in nearly all 50 states, production is primarily concentrated in the northern and Midwestern states—collectively known as the U.S. Corn Belt.

In the 2018/2019 crop marketing year, (Sept. 1- Aug. 31) the United States grew more than 14.42 billion bushels (366 million metric tons) of corn. Roughly 14.3 percent of production was exported to more than 73 different countries.

Mexico (31 percent), Japan (25 percent) and Colombia (9 percent) made up the top three U.S. corn export destinations.
