The expansion of weather volatility, Ag price volatility, and Ag production volatility is going to be orders of magnitude beyond recent historical precedent.
When we overlay these historic climate cycles with current deglobalization and shifting supply chain trends, the “just in time inventory” Ag supply chain model the world has embraced over the past 20 years will quickly revert back to the tried and true
“stockpiling strategy” and regionalized global trade structure seen throughout most of history.
The increased demand required to re-stock the world’s food reserve system will require higher Ag prices to encourage production at a time of challenging volatile weather patterns and systemic shortages of inputs like fertilizer. Food security, accessibility, reliability, and quality are about to take precedence over the prices paid.
In this presentation, Hackett explains these various short, intermediate, and longer-term cycles mentioned above, why they happen along with the historical data on production and price impacts. Emphasis will be placed on how growers and producers can navigate this dramatic change in our weather patterns to alter
their growing, cash-selling, and hedging activities.
Where we grow our food, how we grow our food, how farmers market their crops, and the manner in which we deliver it are
going to change in miraculous ways and forever change our lives. Price volatility means opportunity for those involved in the Ag food change.
This presentation CAN be crafted to include specific Ag markets of interest and will include a discussion on how to use capital flows (our proprietary Smart Money Indicator Algorithm) in futures markets to help producers and end-users better time their cash/hedging activities. Both the long-term and short-term Ag price considerations will be discussed in detail based on these capital flows and natural
weather cycle trends to provide a framework for proper preparation and execution of producer plans and budgets.
