Unusual Weather Patterns Affect Global Agriculture

La Niña is a climate pattern which can trigger large shifts in weather—making some parts of the world hotter and drier, and others cooler and wetter in—that can persist for several seasons, with significant impacts on global agriculture. In this webinar, join us for a discussion on how to understand and anticipate the main effects of La Niña on agricultural markets, particularly for corn, soy, wheat, palm oil, coffee, sugar, and cocoa.

In This Webinar We Will Discuss

  • How corn and soybean markets around the world will feel the impact of drought in South America
  • How La Niña will affect nearly every major wheat producing region in the world
  • The potential impact of increased rainfall in Southeast Asia on palm oil
  • Risks for coffee and sugar production
