Aug. 30 webinar will discuss new farm-income forecasts

Tune in at 1 p.m. ET on August 30 for an hour-long discussion of the newest federal projections of 2019 farm income and other finances. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service releases new estimates each year in February, August and November (this year's first update was delayed until March because of the partial federal shutdown).

The March forecast predicted that 2019 net farm income would stay below $70 billion for the third year in a row, and that such low figures were likely the new normal. ERS economist Carrie Litkowski will host the webinar. Click here to register or for more information.
