DTN’s latest ag confidence index captured the perspectives of farmers as harvest concluded, the midterm elections wrapped up, and winter planning was getting underway. Now, the numbers have been crunched, and we have a clearer picture of grower expectations as the 2023 crop year looms. 

This week, we’re joined by DTN Progressive Farmer Editor-in-Chief Greg Horstmeier, who will take us beat by beat through the latest ag confidence numbers, shedding light on where the ag sector’s collective head is at as solid grain prices persist. We’ll dig into shifting perspectives from different regions and crop groups, understand how input prices and supplies fit in, and tackle how growers report preparing for uncertainties on the horizon.

Plus we’ll discuss farmer outlooks given the promising weather forecast, inflation in the broader economy, and the perspective of agribusiness.
