Economic Experts to Bring Dynamic Agriculture Discussion to Sweetener Colloquium

Nov 07, 2018

It’s been nearly a decade since the financial crisis and the Great Recession and the U.S. economy is regaining its strength and resilience. The U.S. agricultural economy, however, is not benefiting from the current optimistic or “bull” market, according to a panel of financial experts.

Luke Chandler, chief economist at Deere & Company, Christian Lawrence, senior market strategist at Rabobank, and Randy Green, principal of Watson Green LLC, are bringing a brand-new session to the dynamic program of the upcoming International Sweetener Colloquium, Feb. 24-27, in Aventura, Florida.

In the U.S. Economic Outlook, the panelists will provide an overview of U.S. economic prospects and offer a forecast for U.S. agricultural interests. Early registration for the event ends Nov. 16.
