All eyes are on USDA as farmers and agribusinesses await the release of USDA’s September Crop Production and World Ag Supply & Demand Estimates (WASDE) reports on Monday, September 12th. September editions of both reports are always important but especially so this year in light of crop production problems in parts of the U.S. and Western Europe in addition to the disruptions created by the war in Ukraine. The Center will host a webinar on Friday, September 16th where we’ll highlight key information from the reports, the markets’ reaction to new information on the reports and discuss marketing and management strategies for you to consider as combines get ready to roll across the Corn Belt. You can view the webinar live, view the recording on the Center’s YouTube channel over the weekend following the broadcast, or catch the audio version on our Purdue Commercial AgCast podcast. You can subscribe to the podcast on all major podcast providers or you can listen directly on the Center’s website.
