While planting season may be a few weeks away in most parts of the U.S., CHS President and CEO Carl Casale says "there are plenty of reasons for those in agriculture to be optimistic about the year ahead."
St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Casale shared his thoughts recently as a guest web blogger as National Ag Day celebrates its 40th anniversary on March 19. Despite the drought, he wrote, “I’m convinced there are five good reasons to forecast bright long-term prospects for U.S. agriculture.”
In his blog entry, Casale cited continued global food demand growth, increased domestic energy and fertilizer production, technical advances, economically strong position of U.S. producers and agricultural companies, and well-educated new generations of producers and ag employees as bright spots for the future.
