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 2016/2017 crop marketing year, (Sept. 1- Aug. 31) the United States grew over 15.1 billion bushels (385 million metric tons) of corn. Roughly 14 percent of production was exported to more than 70 different countries.

Mexico (24 percent), Japan (23 percent) and South Korea (10 percent) made up the top three U.S. corn export destinations.
