Market Trends and Forecasts

World production

World Corn production for the 2019-20 season, which began on September 1, 2019, is estimated at 1104.01 Mio Tons, lower from the record level anticipated in the recent forecasts.


Production is expected to decrease by 1.7% compared to the previous season, reflecting lower production in the United States (due to a decline in harvested area) and China, the main world producers. Corn production is forecast unchanged for Brazil and slightly higher for the EU-28 (+0.9%).

U.S. Corn used for ethanol is lower based on weekly production data as reported by the Energy Information Administration.
