On the Monday (October 15) edition of “Rewind,” from Bloomberg news, agricultural reporter Alan Bjerga provided an interesting perspective on the intersection of climate issues, production agriculture, and policy.
In part, Mr. Bjerga noted that the U.S. is undergoing an “expansion” of the corn belt due to technology and economic variables that has resulted in a “shfit” of the growing region for the feed grain that now extends north all the way to southern Canada.
The Bloomberg discussion moved to highlight potential policy implications of this development, and also included analysis from Ed Dempsey of Pension Partners, who elaborated on variables associated with biofuels.
Mr. Bjerga’s “takeaway” points from Monday’s discussion are noted in this PowerPoint slide:
