WHEN THE PRICE ISN’T RIGHT

While consumers might think the grain piling up at elevators and storage facilities means a record harvest for farmers, it’s actually more about the low commodity prices farmers have been experiencing for the last three years. “It means we’ve had a big crop, but it also means that price is not conducive to ship it down the river and into terminals,” said Ed Corrigan, senior tech agronomist for Brandt. “It means that the growers are waiting for a better price. They can make money by paying the storage and selling at a later date.” (State Journal-Register)
