Natural variation in the composition of farm crops is important in formulating diets for livestock and poultry. The International Life Science Institute, located in Washington D.C., released an online crop compositional database ( that provides the natural variation in the composition of conventional crops. The database contains over 53,000 data points for 102 nutritional important analyses for corn and soybean samples obtained from controlled field experiments conducted at multiple worldwide locations between 1995-2001. The ILSI task force plans to expand the database.
