App and portal contain information, trends and statistics to help global grain trade grow.

The U.S. Grains Council released a grains conversion calculator app and a U.S. grains-in-all-forms exports portal at its recently concluded annual meeting in Sarasota, Florida.

“The grains conversion app and the grains-in-all-forms portal are cutting-edge resources that contain information, trends and statistics that will help the global grain trade work and grow,” said USGC Chairman Alan Tiemann, who farms in Nebraska.

The council’s grains conversion app converts English units to metric units and vice versa for grains and related measures. The app is available to download for free in the appropriate app stores for Apple, Android and Windows platforms. It also includes an option to switch between multiple languages including English, Arabic, Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish, French and Korean.

The portal

The U.S. grains-in-all-forms exports portal is an online calculator that converts volumes of exported U.S. corn, sorghum, barley, their co-products, ethanol and meat products into corn equivalents. This offers a different and holistic view of the amount of feed grains produced by U.S. farmers that are consumed by overseas customers.

Available on the Council’s website,, this portal allows users to access raw export data, corn equivalent data and U.S. dollar values for each country and the world as a whole for the past five marketing years. A related chart tracks the top importers of each of these products by volume and value.
