CONFLICT AND TRADE: A special live online event will explore how the fight in Ukraine may impact the grain trade in 2022 and beyond.
Noted ag market analyst Bill Biedermann will explore how the conflict in Ukraine could impact the grain trade

The flare-up of fighting in Ukraine, a key ag producer in Eastern Europe, is creating turmoil across a wide range of markets including the grain trade. But what does it mean for prices for the 2022 and 2023 season? How will the supply chain be impacted? What are the key supply areas vulnerable as fighting continues.

Bill Biedermann, long-time commodities adviser will take on the topic in a special online live event Tuesday, March 1 at 10 a.m. Central time.

Biedermann has been trading commodities for 40 years. His firm, AgMarket.Net, is one of the largest IB Brokerage and Agricultural Economic Research Firms in the United States. During his career he has testified before Congress, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and served for the U.S. State Department AID. He is also a contributor to Farm Futures.

During the live call viewers will be able to ask Biedermann questions, and he'll provide insights into how grain flows could be disrupted by the conflict.
