Agricultural producers, agribusinesses and others who want to know more about current and expected market conditions and their impact on North Dakota’s economy will be able to participate in monthly webinars presented by NDSU Extension.

The one-hour webinars will begin at 1 p.m. Central time.

“While 2020 saw many unprecedented disruptions, current farm financial and commodity market conditions continue to evolve with optimism for the next year and beyond,” says David Ripplinger, NDSU Extension bioproducts/bioenergy economist.

Webinar topics will vary month to month, but each will include coverage of the agricultural economy, farm financial conditions, and crops and livestock markets. Farm program updates also will be covered as they are announced. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of each webinar.
