USDA schedules webinar on Wed., Sept. 2, to discuss its new farm-income and financial forecasts
The U.S. Department of Agriculture will host a free webinar at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday, Sept. 2, to go over findings in its soon-to-be-released Farm Income and Financial Forecasts. It will run about an hour.
The USDA's Economic Research Service releases the report three times a year, typically in February, August and November. From the webinar website: "These core statistical indicators provide guidance to policymakers, lenders, commodity organizations, farmers, and others interested in the financial status of the farm economy. ERS' farm income statistics also inform the computation of agriculture's contribution to the U.S. economy's gross domestic product."
