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.
