USSEC to Host USDA Chief Economist Dr. Seth Meyer for Outlook Webinar

As U.S. farmers prepare their planters for seeding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s market analysts prepare the industry for what they may expect from U.S. plantings ahead of the growing season. The USDA’s Planting Intention and Quarterly Stocks Report, set to release March 31, provides the first survey-based look at what farmers intend to plant this year.

That same day, the U.S. Soybean Export Council, with partial funding from the United Soybean Board, will unpack what this means for U.S. Soy in an outlook webinar with featured guest USDA Chief Economist Dr. Seth Meyer. The discussion will be led by Mac Marshall, United Soybean Board and USSEC Vice President of Market Intelligence.  

Participants will hear insights from both the U.S. Soy and USDA perspectives.

“This is a chance to gain additional insight into how the market will likely set up over the next several months,” Marshall says. “It’s an important report to tune in to, especially this year, because of input costs that could dictate farmers’ planting decisions.”

While the focus is on intentions for the growing season, South American production remains a topic of discussion.

Mark your calendar and plan to attend March 31 at 7 p.m. CST for an updated perspective on both U.S. supply and demand, as well as what’s unfolding globally in the oilseeds sector over the next year.
