    Ag Barometer Insight: May 2021 Survey

    The Ag Economy Barometer declined 20 points in May to 158 which is the lowest barometer reading since September 2020 when the index stood at 156. Both principal sub-indices, the Index of Current Conditions and Index of Futures Expectations, declined also. Reflecting expectations for a strong crop sector, two-thirds of corn and soybean producers expect farmland cash rental rates to rise in 2022 compared to 2021. Purdue ag economists James Mintert and Michael Langemeier review the results and give some insight into the May 2021 Ag Economy Barometer survey, a nationwide monthly survey of 400 ag producers. This month’s survey was conducted from May 10-14, 2021. The full report is available at https://purdue.ag/agbarometer.

    Farm Succession: Retirement Planning

    Farm families face challenges with retirement planning and implementation similar to other small businesses but are unique as retirement can be implemented in various individualized situations for operations and management transitions. What activities will the retiring generation take part in? Will he/she remain involved in the labor, management, or ownership? Questions always arise on money for retirement living and similar to other businesses, a lawyer, a financial planner, an accountant, and other professionals may be of aid when retirement planning. Purdue ag economists Brady Brewer discusses retirement planning with the Purdue Farm Transition team, Kelly Heckaman, Jeff Pell and Denise Schroeder.

    Ag Barometer Insight: April 2021 Survey

    The April reading of the Ag Economy Barometer was 178, virtually unchanged from a month earlier when the index stood at 177 and just 5 points below its all-time high of 183, which was set back in October. Compared to March, however, there was a small change in producers’ perspective on the ag economy as they became more optimistic about the future, while their appraisal of the current situation waned. This month’s survey was conducted from April 19-23, 2021. Purdue ag economists James Mintert and Michael Langemeier review the results and give some insight into the April 2021 Ag Economy Barometer survey, a nationwide monthly survey of 400 ag producers. The full report is available at https://purdue.ag/agbarometer.
