When do the best crop marketing opportunities typically occur, from a seasonal perspective? The graphic above demonstrates that 80% of the time during the last 10 years, the best-selling opportunities occurred during a four-month period from May through August. These ten years included big-crop years, short-crop years, years of tight supplies, years of bountiful supplies and everything in between.
What can you do with this information? Since this four-month period is just in front of us, you can take confidence that, statistically, if you make a concerted effort to get 2016 crops sold, you have an 80% chance of selling at the upper end of the seasonal market. Why not enter a target today before you get busy in the field and let the market work for you 17 ½ hours of each day, five days per week?
