The COVID-19 pandemic will be the defining economic event of 2020.

The Ag Economy Barometer is the result of a collaboration between Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture and the CME Group to provide monthly nationwide measures of the health of the US agricultural economy. Together we believe this economic indicator underscores the importance of the agricultural economy and its participants – food producers and agribusinesses – to the overall U.S. and global economies. Purdue will analyze and report the result of each months’ Ag Economy Barometer value, which will be published the first Tuesday of every month.
