JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s annual Agribusiness Conference this year will celebrate its 25th year of providing timely information and agricultural policy education to farmers, agribusiness professionals, students and educators across the Mid-South. 

The 2019 conference, on Wednesday, Feb. 13, will focus on farm management, the economics and politics of trade and farm policy, and commodity and credit markets, according to Dr. Bert Greenwalt, professor of agricultural economics and conference director.

On-site registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. in A-State’s Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Dr.  Lunch will be served in the First National Bank Arena, 217 Olympic Dr., at noon.  Afternoon sessions end at 3:30 p.m.

The morning general session features four speakers and a panel discussion:

— Jim Wiesemeyer, Washington policy analyst for Farm Journal Media, will discuss the impact of the 2018 election on agriculture and the rural economy.

— Amanda Countryman, associate professor of agricultural economics at Colorado State University, will review the theory and history of U.S. trade policy and how current events are impacting farmers and agribusiness.

— Keith Coble, professor of agricultural economics at Mississippi State University, will discuss the lessons learned from the 2018 farm bill debate.

The luncheon speaker, Tyne Morgan, is host of “U.S. Farm Report,” a nationally televised program that focuses on agriculture and agribusiness.  Morgan is a native of Missouri.

Afternoon special-interest sessions include commodity market updates for rice, cotton, and poultry and beef, plus a session on credit, tax, and legal issues for agricultural lenders and producers.
