OSU Extension's Farm "Outlook" for 2013 is Posted Here
Van Wert County,
Listen to the "live" Outlook presentations by OSU Extension economists from February 21st
Farmers and agribusiness need to keep tuned into markets, production economics and farm policy. Trends can change due to measurable factors or seemingly unpredictable forces. Farmers, agribusinesses and others in the agricultural industry had the opportunity to learn more about the current farm outlook at an Ohio State University Extension 2013 Farm Outlook Program in Defiance County on February 21, 2013.
Ohio State University’s Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics and OSU Extension made presentations that brought forth the latest outlook on the grain markets, land rent, and production inputs.
You can watch and listen to two of the 'live' presentations from that evening linked below. Featured speakers included:
Barry Ward, OSU Extension Agriculture Economist, on the production economics of farmland values, and outlook for input costs such as seed, fertilizer and chemicals.
Matt Roberts, OSU Extension Agriculture Economist, on grain market outlook for 2013.
