U.S., Brazil, and Argentina are Main Competitors in Corn/Soybean Markets

How Changes in Brazil’s Corn Industry Could Affect U.S. Corn Exports
June 15, 2016

This report examines the distribution of WIC store types and dollar redemptions and compares the share of WIC versus SNAP redemptions at large stores in FY 2012 as a rough measure of WIC participants’ price sensitivity.
