Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture and CME Group have partnered to launch the Purdue/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer – a monthly nationwide measure of the health of the U.S. agricultural economy.
On the first Tuesday of each month, the Ag Economy Barometer provides a sense of the agricultural economy’s health with an index value. The index is based on a survey of 400 agricultural producers on economic sentiment each month.
CME Group is the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace. The company is comprised of four Designated Contract Markets (DCMs). Further information on each exchange's rules and product listings can be found by clicking on the links to CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX.
