2020 and 2021 Grain Farm Income Outlook with Risk and Rental Implications
December 4, 2020 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CST
Grain farm incomes in 2020 were supported by above-trend yields, higher prices than expected, and several forms of Federal payments. These 2020 incomes serve as a backdrop for 2021 income projections. Sufficient 2021 incomes will be dependent on a combination of above-trend yields and continued Federal payments. Risk management will be critical, and several new tools are available this year. Levels of cash rental likely will depend on continued Federal payments.
