Feeding The World
Farming in the United States is more than an occupation and a way of life. It’s an essential component of world nutrition, health and economics.
American farmers are the world’s most efficient. Consider these facts:
- Each U.S. farmer feeds 155 people per year.
- U.S. corn farmers grow 20 percent more corn per acre than any other nation.
- 55 percent of the world’s corn exports come from the U.S.
- The U.S. produces 40 percent of the world’s corn using only 20 percent of the total area harvested in the world.
Thanks to our farmers, more and more people worldwide are able to enjoy healthy food.
