Permalink Ceres Report Says Water and Climate Risks Threaten U.S. Corn Production

A new report from Ceres coalition, a network of investors, companies, and public interest groups, shows that water and climate change risks are rising in the $67 billion U.S. corn sector. The increasing risks are contributing to production and price volatility and growing concern by corn buyers that the nation's largest crop needs to be grown more sustainably. This report provides new data and interactive maps on the risks facing U.S. corn production, as well as detailed recommendations for how corn-buying companies and their investors can catalyze more sustainable agricultural practices that will reduce risks, preserve and enhance yields, and protect precious water resources. The report is available for download.
