China, 2020 acreage decisions and a volatile market

This weekend's Ag View Pitch takes on a load of issues in this post-holiday edition.

Chris Barron and Duane Lowry have an in-depth discussion regarding US/China trade talks and whether or not we may be very near a deal. They also talk extensively about 2020 acreage and pricing decisions, as well as trying to lay the groundwork for what a new month might bring. Considering last week's diverse price action where Chicago Wheat was up 23 cents, Corn gained approximately 3 cents and soybeans fell 20 cents, there's a lot to analyze in this week's podcast!
