SASKATOON, SK. July 12, 2018 – Join the Grain World Crop Tour Seminar to learn more about our prairie crops and market positions for our farmers in the 2018 season. On July 26, FarmLink Market Analysts will meet to discuss the findings from their farm visits across the prairies.

Senior Market Analysts Jon Dreidger and Neil Townsend from FarmLink Marketing Solutions will present their observations and analysis during the seminar.

They will be joined by special guest and industry leader Kurt Ahrens, President and Chief Analyst of Grainbot in Omaha, Nebraska to discuss crop conditions and outlooks from the U.S, as well as hear his thoughts on Canadian crops. Mr. Ahrens will also speak to current trade issues and timelines towards resolution and escalation.

The crop tour involves analysts, agronomists, and other industry experts visiting farms in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Their minds meet in Saskatoon to analyze the Western Canadian crop market, underlining how our farmers will be successful, any pitfalls on the horizon, and what this means for the agriculture industry in Canada. These insights are compiled to understand how the global economy and foreign policy contributes to our industry.
