Work closely with a team of geographers and meteorologists in order to forecast global crop production. Multiple data sources are compiled to fully understand crop tendencies. USDA area, yield and production data is closely monitored throughout the season.
Recent trends and economic data are used to determine planted area. Throughout the growing season local weather is monitored in order to forecast potential yield. This ultimately leads to a final production estimate. This analysis is compiled at the smallest possible geography, and is aggregated up to a country level enabling a finer level of detail.
