Mother Nature will play a role in ag marketing in coming months, says a nationally recognized economist.

Webinar considers forces driving ag markets

Market forces include global economy, trade and Mother Nature

Dr. Terry Barr, a nationally recognized economist, will assess the interactions between the U.S. and global economy and the global food, energy, fiber and agriculture markets in a webinar, Global Economy, Trade and Mother Nature Driving Agricultural Markets, Thursday, February 21, at 3 p.m. CST.

Barr will emphasize factors shaping the rapid structural transformation of U.S. agriculture and agribusiness and the implications for commodity markets, trade, farmer cooperatives and rural infrastructure.

“Agriculture and rural America will face significant challenges in 2019/20 as the U.S. and global economies slow and trade uncertainties continue,” says Dr. Bobby Coats, professor, Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness, University of Arkansas System, Division of Agriculture, Cooperative Extension Service. “Large commodity supplies and slowing demand growth will put much of the potential for market opportunities in the hands of Mother Nature as producers realign acreage intentions,” says Coats, who hosts a series of University of Arkansas webinars focused on numerous aspects of agricultural markets. “Financial stress in some regions and commodities is likely to continue and increase the focus on cost control, marketing strategies and realignments in food, fiber and agriculture supply chains.”
