Last year’s enormous agricultural commodity price drops due to the COVID-19 pandemic were a “black swan” event, said Dr. David Kohl, Virginia Tech professor emeritus of agricultural finance and small business management.
Virginia had slightly more corn, wheat and oats stored in off-farm facilities on March 1 than at the same time last year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
This hearty winter breakfast has whole grains from the oats, lots of vitamins and antioxidants from the fruits and good fat from the nuts. It's not only healthy. It's tasty, too!
The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Commodity Marketing Department has launched a new tool to assist farmers with frequent decisions they must make about grain market pricing.
National grain supplies are stockpiled, which means lower profits for Virginia grain producers.
