December 9, 2020
Welcome to our annual outlook issue of the Purdue Ag Econ Report (PAER), where take a look back over the previous year and also a look ahead at the economic conditions we can expect for the agricultural sector for 2021.
This past year was filled with a lot of uncertainty in the agricultural markets. A lingering trade war, weather issues, and the COVID-19 pandemic, impacted prices and brought change to all parts of the agricultural value chain. These issues continue to impact the markets now and likely into 2021.
In the following PAER articles, Agricultural Economics Faculty at Purdue University provide insight on the critical issues facing farmers and the agricultural value chain in 2021.
