Midwest Shippers Association/Specialty Soya & Grains Alliance recently announced that their 2019 listings of grower contracts for identity preserved, organic, non-GMO, and specialty grains and oilseeds are now available.

The contracts are offered by MSA/SSGA’s member commodity companies and include a range of crops including soybeans, corn, wheat, sunflowers, flax, borage, peas, pulses, and lentils.

“Preliminary feedback from a survey of our premium soybean and grain exporters and commodity handlers show that many of our member companies are still looking for more contract acres for the upcoming growing season,” said MSA President and CEO Bruce Abbe.

“Several companies also indicated they are interested in purchasing food grade and premium specialty crops where they meet the needs of select export and domestic markets.”

Farmer interest in growing premium crops under contract is also strong as producers are looking for any way to make a profit, SSGA/MSA members say. Premium levels will vary based upon the specific trait of food grade commodity each company is looking for to meet their customers’ needs, but overall premium levels have made some recovery from recent years. 

In addition to the 2019 Grower Contracts Available Listing, website visitors can find a more extensive listing of MSA member companies that are suppliers of a wide range of specialty grains and oilseeds, including: a range of specialty food grade and commodity soybeans; corn; wheat; barley; oats; flax; dry peas, lentils and other pulse crops; and more.
