RealAg Markets: A Look at Early 2014 US Planting Intentions & the Market Impact

Let’s call the March 31st USDA report the kickoff to the new growing season’s marketing year. Yes, markets are continuous and fluid, but this first glimpse of planting intentions for the U.S. is, for some, the first report in a while that really gets interesting.

This week, RealAgriculture editor, Lyndsey Smith, is joined by Jon Driedger, market analyst with FarmLink Marketing Solutions, in this edition of RealAg Markets.
