CME Group: Confidence in the ag economy soars; producers confirm large prevented plantings of corn and soybeans

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. and CHICAGO, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer reading jumped to 153 in July, up 27 points from June, and up 52 points from May.

This improvement occurred despite the fact that many producers were in the midst of filing prevented planting crop insurance claims and wondering about the size of the USDA’s 2019 Market Facilitation Payments (MFP). Results are based on a survey of 400 agricultural producers across the U.S. conducted from July 15 through July 19, 2019, which was prior to USDA’s announcement of 2019 MFP payment rates.
