Ag Economy Barometer Rises to Record High On Improving Financial Conditions
Farmer sentiment hit a new record high in October as the Purdue University-CME Group Ag Economy Barometer climbed to a reading of 183, a 27-point increase compared to September. The reading easily eclipsed the previous record high set back in February, before the pandemic’s onset. On this episode of the Purdue Commercial AgCast, Purdue ag economists James Mintert and Michael Langemeier review the results and give some insight into the October 2020 Ag Economy Barometer survey, a nationwide monthly survey of 400 ag producers.
