U.S. Processing Sweet Corn Production Statistics (1993 - 1997)

In the U.S. the farm value of sweet corn for processing ranks second only to tomatoes. Leading producers of sweet corn for processing in the U.S. in 1997 were Minnesota, Washington, Wisconsin, Oregon and New York. The total U.S. acreage of processing sweet corn harvested in 1997 was 464,220 acres, yielding a total of 3,323,540 tons (average yield = 7.16 tons/acre), and a total value of $247,839,000. In 1997, production of processed sweet corn was up about 0.8% from 1996. About 52% of the acreage was devoted to sweet corn for canning, and about 48% for freezing in 1997.

The following data shows production (tons), harvested acres, yield (tons/acre) and total value ($) of the processed sweet corn crop for the major processed sweet corn producing states for the period 1993 to 1997.
