Grain Marketing Facts*

  • Corn farmers have several options to where their corn goes after harvest: On-farm storage, a country elevator, a container yard, a barge terminal, a shuttle elevator or a soybean processor. This makes transportation ever more important to our state.
  • Compared to other states, Indiana ranks 5th in corn production.
  • Of the 597 million bushels produced in 2013, 112 million bushels were used as livestock feed, 276 million bushels were used in ethanol production, and 117 million bushels were shipped for out-of-state use.
