The acreage of organic corn cultivars planted each year is increasing in Iowa. In 2005, 20,247 acres of organic corn were planted in the state, ranking Iowa second in the nation for organic corn production (USDA ERS, 2005). Public perception that organic production is healthier for both the environment and the consumer has fueled the increase.
