Webinar Planned on Post-pandemic Agricultural Outlook
A webinar exploring the post-pandemic economic factors that will shape agriculture’s outlook in the year ahead will be hosted by the Center for Agricultural Profitability at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln at noon on Thursday, May 26.
It will be presented by Nathan Kauffman, Omaha branch executive, vice president and economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
“Economic conditions in agriculture have rebounded dramatically in the past two years, alongside a sharp recovery in broader economic conditions,” Kauffman said. “While factors specific to the pandemic may continue to affect economic conditions to varying degrees, the path forward for agriculture will depend significantly on these broader economic forces.”
He mentioned high commodity prices, record farmland values and farm financial conditions that are considerably stronger than before the pandemic as factors that have contributed to the post-pandemic rebound. The webinar will discuss the outlook for economic conditions related to agriculture in the year ahead.
It will be hosted on Zoom and registration is open on the Center for Agricultural Profitability’s website.
