Save the date for an important webinar to discuss the impacts of the 2012 drought on wheat, corn and soybeans prices and supply, Tuesday, July 31, at 3:00 pm ET.
Wheat, corn and soybean prices are skyrocketing due to the impact of the worst drought in half a century that has settled over more than half of the continental United States this summer. With 88 percent of the corn crop and 87 percent of the soybean crop in drought-stricken regions, agricultural commodity prices will only continue to climb. This webinar will help guide bakers during this challenging time for our industry.
Join agriculture market expert Collin Hulse, FC Stone, as he discusses how the drought will impact the wheat, corn and soybean markets over the next few months, and how the Canadian and Russian markets will impact prices and supply. Craig Solberg, Meteorologist with Freese-Notis Weather, will also give a presentation on what weather to expect over the next few weeks in these drought stricken areas.
