Crop Commodities Market Insights and Forecasting

Agricultural commodities are at an interesting and dynamic crossroads, as demand is surging for feedstuffs at a time when food is increasingly looked to as a solution to reduce carbon in motor fuels. Can agricultural production meet the needs for food, feed, and fuel without impacting sensitive land and rainforests?

Additionally, the cost of production continues to rise with higher fertilizer and transportation costs. This creates challenges for global agricultural systems whose power is shifting to places like Brazil, the Black Sea, and Asia. This shift is causing food and agricultural commodity prices to be impacted by currency fluctuations, governmental policy changes, and political tensions like never before.
