Market Alert – Yellow Whole Corn

Well shucks, y’all … Yellow whole corn availability is incredibly tight right now. The market has moved from Florida to Georgia product. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia farmers were hesitant to plant in February and March; plantings were cut back drastically. Increased demand for yellow whole corn started popping over the Memorial Day holiday and has continued as we move into summer. Multiple shippers are reporting no corn available. The surge in demand along with drastically reduced plantings has led to severe shortages. Some maturity challenges have cropped up as well, creating obstacles for the incoming product. We’re stalking the market and will keep you updated.
