WEBINAR: Developing a strategy for marketing grain in a low priced environment

Hear the latest on the grain market, and how to develop a marketing strategy. 

Global stocks of grains are currently abundant, sitting at, or very close to all-time highs.  Subsequently international prices are weak, with Australian values getting some support from the lower dollar. In a few months planting will begin, and this webinar will examine the market outlook and how to develop a strategy if prices remain low.

In this webinar you will have the opportunity to ask your questions to industry leaders, and if you can't make it live to the event a video copy will be available for viewing at your own leisure.
