USDA's monthly Agricultural Outlook presents a concise overview of the agricultural economy and its major components through situation and outlook briefings. The comprehensive review of latest developments and future uncertainties on the food and fibers scene offers supply, demand, and price analyses and forecasts. Consistent with its intersectoral approach, impacts on both producers and consumers are projected. Major sections are: Overview of the agricultural economy; Commodities; Food and Marketing; Farm inputs; Policy developments; Transportation; and World agriculture and trade. Agricultural Outlook is USDA's official source on marketing costs and on food price and farm income forecasts. Charts and tables are interspersed throughout the narrative, and special analytical articles are run from time to time. Regular tables in the statistical indicators section include data series on supplies and use of farm products, farm income, farm prices received and paid, marketing spreads, wholesale and retail food prices, U.S. agricultural trade, general economic indicators, and more. Also appearing each month is a checklist of new USDA and State Crop and Livestock Reporting Service reports.
