U.S. corn exports at $7.6 billion were down 39 percent or nearly $5 billion in 2019, from the 2018 record. This is the lowest level of corn exports since 2013. The sharp decline was attributed to higher U.S. prices impacted by unprecedented planting delays, reduced yield, relatively strong domestic use in the United States, and abundant competitor supplies. Top destinations were Mexico, Japan, Colombia, and South Korea, accounting for three-quarters of total U.S. corn exports.
