Notes: Prices are adjusted for inflation and expressed in 2019 U.S. dollars.
This chart shows soybean and corn prices in the United States, adjusted for inflation, from 1886 to 2019. As with other agricultural commodities, prices for corn and soybeans fluctuate because of several complex factors, including adverse regional weather conditions, major wars, oil prices, global currency fluctuations, and market speculation. This chart shows that, when corrected for inflation, both corn and soy prices are historically low but have been rising since 2000.
