Matt Roberts, associate professor at Ohio State University, spoke at the Wyffels Hybrids Corn Strategies Conference at Wild Rose Farm, Inc., near Galesburg, Ill. Here he talks about marketing strategies for lower-priced corn.
Roberts says corn producers are going to have to be very tactical, as he doesn’t see the high corn prices coming back any time soon. Growers should focus on HTAs and maximize on-farm storage, he says.
“Pick off those little rallies when you can; sell up. I wouldn’t get too aggressive, but don’t expect prices above $4.25 before September,” he says.
