Commodity prices are a leading indicator of inflation, and the commodity price surge in August 2020 was a telling sign that inflation was about to rip through the entire economy.

Inflationary pressures are finally beginning to ease in other areas of the U.S. economy. While the slower pace of increasing prices may seem like a blessing for farmers, it is actually a bit more complicated than that – and potentially not quite as rosy.

Tune in as Jacqueline Holland explains the relationship between commodity prices and inflation, the role of hedge funds, and the potential for "sticky inflation." Also, learn why it's more important than ever to focus on marketing plans and banking relationships during the 2023 growing season.
