Grain markets face heavy lifting as harvest approaches. (video)

USDA’s Aug. 10 reports cast a pallor over grain markets already reeling from the trade dispute with China. With headlines seeming to roil prices on a daily basis, it’s hard to get a grip on just how good, or bad, the outlook as farmers get ready to harvest 2018 crops.

Farm Futures senior grain market analyst Bryce Knorr tries to cut through the clutter with this presentation on the outlook for corn, soybeans, wheat and other markets in the year ahead. He presented the webinar Aug. 16 for the University of Arkansas Extension.
