Purdue Center for Commercial Ag to host free corn and soybean outlook webinar

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture will host a free Corn and Soybean Outlook webinar for the month of October. The webinar is set for 3:30 p.m. (EDT) Friday (Oct. 9).

The webinar will immediately follow the release of the United States Department of Agriculture’s October Crop Production and World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates reports, which will be a main topic of the discussion.

“As we’re seeing harvest commence, we’ll review information released in the October USDA reports and provide insight into what these results could mean for the months ahead,” said James Mintert, professor and director of the Center for Commercial Agriculture. “We’ll also discuss updated profitability estimates and marketing strategies for both corn and soybeans.”

Michael Langemeier, professor and associate director of the Center for Commercial Agriculture, and Nathanael Thompson, assistant professor in Purdue’s Department of Agricultural Economics, will join Mintert for the webinar. Registration is free on the Center for Commercial Agriculture’s website (link below). Upon registration, participants will receive a confirmation email with a link to view the webinar live at its scheduled time. Those unable to join live can register to receive a follow-up email after the webinar to download the slides and view the recording.
