Rice Marketing Educational Seminar

Milo Hamilton, Co-founder and Senior Agricultural Economist of Firstgrain, Inc.
       
Good rice marketing involves a knowledge of the global situation for rice trends in price and stocks. Rice is not like oats which are largely a domestic market and fed to horses. Rice is fed to people with all that entails. This special workshop is broken into two distinct sessions: How to assess global rice conditions and their impact on your local price trend and How to access what is a high or low price in your area at any point in time.  In this world of profitless prices, every Truman dime counts. Will you survive or thrive in 2021?
