The new year is starting off with a bang as the corn and soybean markets react day-by-day to weather concerns in South America. USDA will release updated supply/demand information on January 12th and Nathan Thompson, Michael Langemeier and James Mintert will host the Center’s first crop outlook webinar of 2022 on January 14th. You can view the program live, on video over the holiday weekend, or listen to the audio version on our Purdue Commercial AgCast podcast. Registrants will receive an email with a link to the recorded versions as soon as they are available.

It’s not too late to register for tomorrow’s (January 7) Purdue Top Farmer Conference. We have sessions focused on opportunities for storing carbon in agricultural soils, Corn Belt farmland values, and strategies you can use to deal with the run-up in crop input costs amidst supply-chain driven input shortages. This year’s conference keynote speaker is Dr. Frank Mitloehner from the University of California-Davis addressing animal ag’s path to climate neutrality. The conference will be broadcast live online to registered participants. If you register for the conference, you’ll also have access to the recorded videos following the conference as well as material presented during the conference.
