Historical data cannot predict how crop markets will move in the future. But they provide a useful guide.

They illustrate, for instance, how far growers are likely to ramp up production of a crop in response to rising prices, or a likely worst-case scenario to allow for should poor weather strike.

Agrimoney.comís historical estimates section will be rolled out over time to cover data from a number of sources, offering readers a single reference point for crop statistics from throughout the world.
