Speaker

Late January is essentially the halfway point in the marketing year. It’s also often that ‘calm before the storm’, where markets are far enough along in the season to have a good sense of what the remainder of the crop year may look like, but also before there is an intent focus on the upcoming season. While markets ebb-and-flow through periods of action and tranquility, growers need to be thinking about grain marketing 12 months of the year. This session will provide a perspective on the final half of the current marketing year, while also outlining those critical factors to monitor when thinking about the markets for 2020/21 as well. This includes not just traditional grain market fundamentals, but the wider macroeconomic and geopolitical climate as well.
