    The single greatest fundamental change in our lifetimes in the Ag space has just begun and it is going to turn the Ag world upside down before it is over.

    Over the next 40 years the sun will be going through a rare 200 year Grande Solar Cycle Minimum. The expansion of weather volatility, Ag price volatility is going to be beyond anyone’s comprehension.

    In this presentation, we go over what this conditions is, why it happens, the historical data on what it means and then how Ag operators can navigate this dramatic change in our weather patterns to not only survive but also to thrive.

     Where we grow our food, how we grow our food and the manner with which we deliver it is going to change in miraculous ways and forever change our lives.

    We all know the greatest enemy for an Ag operator is emotions. Trying to predict future prices and execute hedging strategies through opinion and emotions is destined to be met with disappointment.

    In this presentation, we go over how to apply an indicator based system that creates a consistent objective approach to price forecasting and hedging and takes the emotions and the opinions out of the equation.

    If we are remotely correct about the record weather and price volatility that is to come resulting from the first Grande Solar Cycle Minimum in over 200 years, having a highly correlated, time tested and objective indicator system approach will be critical to taking advantage of the markets instead of the markets taking advantage of you.

    Doing it the way you have always done it will not cut it over the next 40 years if one is to survive and thrive.

    We all remember when  the United States decided to promote corn based ethanol. Demand for corn went parabolic and over ran available supplies and then increased weather volatility sent corn prices and all grain markets to all time records highs. Forward to today, the same corn based ethanol policy has begun in China although on an even larger scale.

    In this presentation, we go over what the Chinese policy is, how much demand for corn will grow and when that demand will begin to tighten supplies and impact grains prices and corn prices to the upside.

    If we are remotely correct about the increased weather volatility to come resulting from the first Grande Solar Cycle Minimum in over 200 years, grain prices are likely to set all time records over the next 3 to 5 years.
