At the end of the U.S. Grains Council's (USGC) annual meeting in Florida, it announced the release of a grains conversion calculator app and a U.S grains-in-all-forms exports portal.
“We are excited to expand our digital presence to include these products that will be helpful for both domestic and international stakeholders,” USGC Chairman Alan Tiemann said. “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.”
The grains conversion app converts English and metric units. It is available for Apple, Android and Windows phones in English, Arabic, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin and Spanish.
The U.S. grains-in-all-forms exports portal converts volumes of exported U.S. corn, sorghum, barley, ethanol and meat products into corn equivalents which helps farmers get an idea of how much feed grains are produced in the U.S. and consumed overseas. Users can also obtain raw export data, corn equivalent data and U.S. dollar values for each country and the world for the past five years. The grains-in-all-forms portal is exclusively available on the USGC website.
The USGC works with producers of corn, barley, sorghum and ethanol throughout the world in an effort to make the industry the best it can.
