Demand for organic grain on the rise

Posted May 6, 2005: According to a report on USAgNet, demand for organic grain is at an all-time high among food processors and livestock farmers.

The increased demand has manifested itself in terms of price. Grain brokers report organic soybeans regularly bring between $17 and $25 a bushel and organic corn about $7, while conventional commodities often sell for less than a quarter of their organic counter part.

Demand has also surged for organic varieties of specialty grains such as flax and amaranth.
