The Commodity Classic will be in New Orleans, Louisiana. Commodity Classic Committee member and Illinois farmer Kenny Harman is looking forward to being back in-person. “We’re excited to put this together. On the trade show floor, we’ve got nearly 400 exhibitors. We were sold out a few months ago on the trade floor. There’s about 50 educational sessions and Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack will be talking at the general session later on this week.” The corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum industries will be meeting this week. Harman is looking forward to Corn Congress. Fertilizer and other input prices are expected to be a big topic, along with the upcoming farm bill. “We’ll have a policy discussion and then, on the corn side, we’ll also give awards to the corn yield contest winners.” Follow the Red River Farm Network’s coverage of the event later this week.
