Weekend reading: What Big Ag is thinking about planting decisions and economic prospects
Every now and then I run into an excellent source of information about things I know nothing about. I’ve just discovered Purdue University’s Ag Economy Baromoter, which tracks the opinions of producers of corn and soybeans.
Big Ag feels pretty good about current agriculture and trade policies, probably because USDA’s agricultural support system ihistorically has been firmly rigged in their favor.
If Purdue asked small and medium-sized producers, it might get a different stiory.
