Extension’s Role in Commodity Marketing Education: Past, Present, and Future

John M. Riley

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 2013, vol. 45, 19

Abstract: Historically, market situation and outlook has often included some form of price forecast. Recent volatility in agricultural commodity markets is making price forecasts challenging and at times less reliable. In addressing this price volatility, changes in agricultural markets are highlighted along with price forecasts: pre- and post-increased market volatility. Given these recent challenges, the future of Extension agricultural commodity marketing is discussed.
