In what ways would we be affected if we ran out of corn by this fall?

Asked by Aster (19974points) May 14th, 2011

I heard someone on tv say that we will be out of corn by September. If he’s right how will this affect us?

May not affect US very much aside from higher prices. Those whom we export to will feel the pinch much worse.

The cost of food would increase. It would affect the prices of animal feed, processed foods and fast foods, which contain a lot of corn filler products and high fructose corn syrup.
