As Plant22 gets underway across the country– farmers are battling high winds, wet soils, cold temperatures and drought. As we look ahead to what looks to be a hot dry year, not only in the US but also in other key growing regions, weather promises to play a major role in operations and in informing the market in the year to come.
DTN’s Team Lead for Ag Weather John Baranick joins us today to provide an overview of what we might expect to see in the year ahead, from the lingering winter weather in the coming weeks to the likelihood of a parched summer in different regions.
We’ll talk about changing drought conditions, La Nina effects, extreme weather and wildfires, in addition to discussing a far future look at what harvest weather might have in store. John also offers perspective on spotting and understanding weather wild cards, and points out which trends, both in the US and abroad, he thinks might be most likely to change.
