After weeks of erratic weather conditions, it’s finally beginning to look like the Midwest will have corn and soybean crops to harvest this fall.
The same can be said for crops in the Mid-South and Southeast, which also struggled during planting, although the corn crops in the southern portions of the two regions are almost ready for harvest and early season soybeans won’t be far behind.
Yes, after an unusual start to the growing season this summer, prospects for the 2015 crops are starting to take shape. Bryce Knorr, senior grain market analyst with Farm Futures, will discuss those during the next University of Arkansas Food and Agribusiness Webinar.
Knorr, who has been analyzing and writing about the commodity markets for nearly 30 years, will present the results of Farm Futures’ exclusive grower survey, along with updated projections from weather models and what they mean for prices ahead of USDA’s key estimates Aug. 12. The webinar will begin at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5.
