The information glut looms large for producers trying to get a handle on today’s volatile commodity markets. But the fact is, successful producers usually zero in on only a few important factors.

A panel of experts, including analyst Richard Brock, will make sure you’re on the right wave length this year at Decisions ’08, a seminar to be held in Memphis, July 22, at the Peabody Hotel, in Memphis, Tenn.

Sponsors of the event are Delta Farm Press, Helena Chemical Co., Monsanto, Rabo AgriFinance and Brock Associates.

Registration begins at 7:15 a.m. with the seminar set to begin at 8 a.m.

Speakers include: seasoned agricultural meteorologist Drew Lerner, who will discuss weather patterns and trends; grain analyst Richard Brock, who will provide a market outlook and pricing strategies for corn, soybeans, cotton, rice and other commodities; and Monsanto’s Barry Knight, who will map out Monsanto’s movement in cotton, corn and soybean germplasm over the next three years.

In addition, Randall Pope will discuss farmland values, Michael Whitehead will discuss how global factors are increasingly playing a role in the U.S. agricultural outlook, and Brian Braswell will present a session on making better management decisions.

The event will conclude at 3:45 p.m.

Registration fee is $95 for per registrant, $50 for a registrant’s spouse and $50 for students. Pre-registration guarantees a seat at the seminar. For more information call (800) 558-3431.
