Leasing season is again upon us. This webinar will first provide an outlook for setting 2021 leases. Then, attention will turn to conservation and leasing. Many landowners and farmers want to engage in more conservation practices but are concerned about the impacts these conservation practices may have on relationships between landowners and farmers. We will cover issues related to owner-farmer relationships for conservation, nutrient management, and cover crops. Conservation addendums to farmland leases available on farmdoc will be shown.
This webinar discusses the implications of the September 1 stocks reports and October Crop Production report on corn supply and demand prospects for the 2020-21 marketing year. A detailed discussion of USDA’s September 30 stocks report will provide a clearer picture of the impact on corn and soybean balance sheets. The webinar will review the USDA’s U.S. corn and soybean yield and production forecasts released on October 10. The production forecasts will be combined with projections of marketing year consumption in order to project the magnitude of year-ending stocks. The implications for marketing year average prices as well as the likely pattern of prices during the 2020-21 marketing year will be discussed.
