Higher input costs and input availability are the top two concerns reported by farmers in our most recent Purdue University-CME Group Ag Economy Barometer survey followed by the risk of declining crop and livestock prices. Crop producers also said that supply chain problems are still with us across all major crop input categories and fifty percent of respondents to the May barometer survey said that tight farm machinery inventories are impacting their investment decisions. Input price and availability risk being chosen by more farmers as their top risk rather than the risk of declining commodity prices is virtually unprecedented and highlights the fact that ag producers face elevated risks across the board. Our upcoming webinar on Monday, June 13th will review the latest supply and demand information from USDA and discuss the commodity outlook, but we’ll also discuss the managerial challenges faced by U.S. farmers and provide insight into strategies you can consider employing in the year ahead.
