Washington Agribusiness: Status & Outlook

Washington Agribusiness: Status and Outlook is an annual publication prepared by Washington State University faculty in the School of Economic Sciences. It is intended to be a concise overview of Washington’s current and near-term agricultural activity. The publication is broken down into two primary sections. Section I reviews the status of various sub-sectors in agriculture and provides short-term projections or areas of focus moving forward. Section II provides specialty research focused on agricultural economic issues such as agricultural futures markets, organic farming, wheat milling, etc.

Feedback on any issue and suggestions for future featured articles is most welcome. Specific questions regarding focus areas in the report should be directed to the managing editor who will work with the primary authors to provide responses.
