AMES, Iowa – A free, one-hour webinar on crop marketing strategies will be presented Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
Steve Johnson, farm management specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach, and Ed Kordick, farmer education program manager with the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, will discuss topics related to the current crop in storage to be marketed.
Specifically, they will discuss the current corn and soybean supply and demand, and the price outlook; local basis trends and future price carry; cost of grain ownership; and crop marketing strategies, tools and market planning.
“Participants will better understand the importance of tracking their own local basis and calculating cost of ownership for bushels being stored,” said Johnson. “Also, we will discuss the multitude of crop marketing resources available on the ISU Extension and Outreach Ag Decision Maker website.”
The Ag Decision Maker is holding crop marketing webinars on a monthly basis and most sessions are free. Additional farm management opportunities are also being offered, and include the annual Pro-Ag Outlook and Management webinars, which will be held daily the week of Dec. 7. The Pro-Ag registration is $20 for the week.
Pre-registration for the Crop Marketing Strategies webinar is required. To register and review additional webinars, visit the Ag Decision Maker webinar site.
