Max Armstrong gets a look at key market indicators for 2021 from an industry observer

Max Armstrong shares insight from Dan Basse, president, Agresource who has been speaking virtually to groups saying 2021 will be a good year for farmers. And the second half will improve as more people get the COVID-19 vaccine. Max observes that a lot of the higher farm income in 2020 came from direct payments and Basse says it will help farm balance sheets, but Basse doesn't see more of those payments in 2021.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
