Friday, November 6, 2015 - Recently the US Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) published the first Non-GE/GMO Weekly Report.
Published every Wednesday, the report provides prices for non-GE/GMO corn and soybeans. This is helpful to producers that are thinking about transitioning to organic production.
There is even a market for products during the organic transition period. Although products cannot be certified organic during the transition period, the products are non-GMO and there is demand for them.
Some of the most recently added reports have focused on sustainable agriculture markets. In 2013, AMS began publishing a weekly report on grass-finished beef. AMS will launch four additional reports this fall:
- pasture-raised pork;
- free-range chicken;
- farm-raised catfish; and
- commodities grown by American Indian tribes.
Producers can get in touch with Morris or other members of the AMS market research team to provide feedback on the new non-GE/GMO weekly report or request data related to other market areas.
