Flexibility may be key to marketing 2017 crops

Growers should make revisions to their marketing plans to meet changing realities in the commodity markets during 2017.

As you plan how you will grow your 2017 crops, you also need to be planning how to sell them, according to marketing specialists with Mississippi State University. But the process shouldn’t end there.

Brian Williams, assistant Extension professor with MSU, says growers should consider revisiting their marketing plans as they get into the season to make sure they match up with changing realities of crop conditions and supply and demand fundamentals.

Dr. Williams was one of several Mississippi State University agricultural economists who provided thoughts on marketing the 2017 crops during Extension Service Marketing Workshops at the Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville and the North Mississippi Research and Extension Center in Verona on March 8 and 9.
