for lower value crops that increase soil fertility and suppress
weeds; and 3) Increase the number of trusted advisers and
farmer networks for organic farmers.
" It would be hard to overestimate the role of grain in the
human diet, in the advancement of agriculture and in the
development of civilizations, " the USDA said in discussing
the OTA-USOGC report. " But while organic grain production in the United States is growing, it is not doing so fast
enough to meet the needs of the nation's robust and expanding organic livestock industry. "
While livestock producers often have turned to imports, the flour milling industry has met steadily growing
demand for foodgrade organic grains by bringing new domestic growers on board. Strategies have included transitional growing programs and building a nationwide milling, processing and distribution infrastructure to ensure a
market for growers and to fully satisfy customer demand
for organic grain-based products.
According to the USDA, the amount of US farmland devoted to organic grains (corn, wheat, oats, barley
and soybeans) grew by more than 20% from 626,000 to
765,000 acres from 2008 to 2016. That compares with
planted area of nearly 233 million acres for those crops in
2016, or less than 1% of the crop area. More than 5 million total acres was devoted to organic farming in 2016,
of which 2.3 million acres were pasture and ranch land.
(The data is dated, as is the case for most data on organic
agriculture and production.)
Like the discrepancy in acres, the amount of organic
grain is dwarfed by the overall market.
" For the 2019-20 marketing year, we estimated that US
organic wheat food use and residual reached about 13
million bus, " said Ryan Koory, director of economics for
Mercaris, the organic and non-GMO grain and oilseed
market intelligence and trading service. " And we estimate
this number likely to climb to 13.9 million bus over the
2020-21 marketing year. "
In contrast, US all wheat production was estimated by
the USDA at 1,826 million bus in 2019-20.
Prices received for organic grains tend to be at least double those of conventionally grown grains, helping to offset
the lengthy entry period and often lower yields of organic
crops, but are not isolated from market volatility.
" Like conventional grains, the price of organic grains can
be volatile, and prices have been described as an 'unstable
rollercoaster' relative to the difference between the organic
premium and conventional prices, " the USDA said.
In many cases, food processors have contracted with
farmers to ensure a market for their organic products. As
the market continues its rapid growth, marketing channels
should grow as well, which will encourage more farmers to
produce organic and reduce the dependence on imports.
