Spring Weather Forecast to be Unveiled at Fort Wayne Farm Show


With Indiana in the grips of a wintery blast, farmers are counting the days until spring. But what kind of spring will it be? A clue to that will be given at a special presentation by Hoosier Ag Today and Farm Credit Mid-America at the Fort Wayne Farm show on Wednesday. Hoosier Ag Today chief meteorologist Ryan Martin will outline what the computer models are showing for spring.

The program will begin at 1:30pm in the Appleseed room. Martin will discuss the climate changes taking place that will set the stage for the 2018 planting season. In his frank, to-the-point style, the native Hoosier and Purdue-trained weather forecaster will outline weather trends for the remainder of the winter and how these will impact field conditions when it is time for planters to roll.

Following Martin’s presentation, D r. Chris Hurt, noted ag economist from Purdue, will present his 2018 outlook program. This will examine the farm economy, the world economy, and likely market trends for the coming marketing year.
