As part of our efforts to bring market insight to our clients and others interested in agriculture, we are pleased to present the Grain Industry Outlook.  These reports will provide a comprehensive longer-term outlook on the industry as well as information on ‘what to watch’ in the months ahead.

In the future, look for quarterly updates on other industries including: swine, dairy and  renewable fuels.

Grain production is a dynamic industry. Rising energy prices and the growing global demand will keep the spotlight on corn, soybeans and renewable energy well into the future. Success in today’s global grain market takes a unique balance of production, marketing and risk management.

Grain producers represent the largest segment AgStar serves, comprising over 26% of our portfolio. We make it our business to stay in tune with the heartbeat of the industry, which in turn, keeps you on the cutting edge.
Many of our Financial Services Officers come from a farming background and many farm today. They have the industry knowledge and the experience to help you find solutions that keep you ahead of your competition, whether you sell locally or globally.

From risk management and marketing insight to industry knowledge and expertise, AgStar can provide the resources you need to remain competitive in a business that doesn’t stand still.
