The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in February launched the Ag Bulletin, a quarterly resource that provides a high-level outlook for the country’s agricultural sector.
The Ag Bulletin includes an outlook summary, followed by charts on current U.S. economic indicators. It includes an agricultural price index, farm income and revenue, crop and meat production, demand for agricultural products, and agricultural credit conditions.
The first installment of the Ag Bulletin showed that economic conditions in U.S. agriculture improved dramatically in the fourth quarter of 2020 alongside sharp increases in the prices of several major commodities.
