WEST LAFAYETTE – Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture will host a free corn and soybean outlook webinar for the month of January at 12:30 p.m. (ET) Jan. 13.
The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) January Crop Production and World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates reports will be a main topic of the discussion, as will a look at profitability estimates for 2021.
