Gary Schnitkey, University of Illinois agricultural economist and farm management specialist, said at the Illinois Farm Economics Summit that prevent plant would have yielded higher returns than planting corn in many situations in Illinois.
In my last newsletter I spoke of the National Association of Agricultural Economics Administrators (NAAEA) meeting in Washington, DC organized by the Council on Food and Agricultural, and Resource Economics (C-FARE). I applaud the leadership of NAAEA and C-FARE for the opportunity to participate and see the engagement of that meeting. My sense is our story was told well and we gained useful information for our academic departments.
Shortly after the NAAEA Meeting, long term C-FARE Executive Director and AAEA Government Relations Director Caron Gala accepted a position with the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities. Caron has been a tireless advocate for our profession during difficult times and we wish her the best in her new role. The Board is developing a plan to move forward in 2020.
