Post-Harvest Marketing Challenge: Sizing Up the Market

CSD columnist Ed Usset, University of Minnesota, spoke to farmers at Commodity Classic on March 2. His topic: post-harvest marketing for corn and soybeans. Usset used fictional characters to show different marketing styles and the results from those styles, whether you sell the carry, have no storage, etc. He also talked about sizing up the market and offered a pre-harvest marketing plan. His biggest reminder to attendees, and all crop marketers: Forget last year!

See what Ed had to say about the marketing styles and carrying charges.
