Around the Table Live: The final look before spring planting logo

We’re heading into the 2021 crop year with strong tailwinds and high expectations, but driving forces can change quickly. Join us for a virtual roundtable discussion on Thursday, March 18, noon to 1 p.m. CT, for the latest on economic and global grain supply and demand trends to consider as you finalize planting decisions.

The roundtable of industry experts will address key questions including:

  • How supply and demand estimates influence corn, soybeans and wheat prices?
  • What do historically low soybean carryover and stocks-to-use ratio mean for the 2021 planting season?
  • How will weather patterns, trade agreements and transportation factors affect grain and fertilizer movement?

Panelists include Ken Eriksen, senior vice president, IHS Markit; Joe Lardy, research analyst, CHS Global Research; and Will Stafford, Washington, D.C., representative, CHS Government Affairs. Nelson Neale, head of CHS Global Research and president, CHS Hedging, will moderate the conversation.

Register today for Around the Table Live: The final look before spring planting.
