The focus is on US and world acreage and crop production, supply and demand estimates, price outlooks, transportation and storage projections, weather forecasts, agricultural policy, farm programs and long-term agribusiness trends. The scope of this work covers the following commodities:

  • Research underpinned by a thorough understanding of production and usage for the US and the world, with fundamental factors incorporated into analysis and price forecasts.

  • US and world production forecasts based on our well-respected survey of acreage and yields.

  • Feed Ingredient Markets - Your source for market insight

    • Informa Economics provides animal and grain ingredient co-product industries, feed ingredient marketers, biodiesel producers as well as poultry, livestock and dairy producers insight to feed ingredient markets. These markets lack clarity and often function on their own evolving set of fundamentals. Day-to-day contact with these diverse markets allows Informa Economics to provide perspective not easily attained by market participants. Price discovery, commentary and contact in the industry through the Feed Ingredient Daily are the linchpin to the variety of other services Informa Economics can offer to help your company succeed.
