North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension’s monthly webinar on agricultural markets will continue in 2022. The series targets farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses and others who want to know more about current and expected market conditions and their impact on North Dakota’s economy

“The webinar series has been well-received,” says David Ripplinger, NDSU Extension bioproducts/bioenergy economist. “We look forward to continuing the series as an opportunity to provide up-to-date insights on the agricultural economy and North Dakota. It has complemented our other efforts, including the face-to-face programs that remain at the core of what we do in Extension agribusiness.”

Webinar topics will vary month-to-month, but each will include coverage of the agricultural economy, farm financial conditions, and crops and livestock markets.
