The Global Ag Impact from Current Events

The Lempert Report
April 20, 2022

Our food supply is in the headlines every day – as prices soar, shortages increase and a war 6,000 miles away has the head of the U.N. Food Programme predicting that it’ll get even worse. U.S. farmers are working hard to establish a safe and secure food supply domestically while climate change is creating new challenges every day. One of our core crops comes from the hard work of our US soy farmers; so I invited Mac Marshall from the United Soybean Board to give us the lowdown. Mac serves as the Vice President, Market Intelligence for the United Soybean Board (USB) and U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC). His background includes serving as a staff economist at the US Bureau of Labor Statistics with a focus on agriculture commodities. Mac serves as an industry source of market information and analysis here and globally. I can think of no one better to give us the real take about what’s going on.
