Speaker: Samantha Padilla

The Economic Research Service's Commodity Costs and Returns data product reports estimates for twelve major field crops and animal products. Updated twice a year, these estimates are useful for informing stakeholders, including policymakers, agribusiness, and researchers, of current and historical costs and returns associated with major U.S. commodities. The estimates are also featured in numerous ERS reports and serve as the basis for research.

During this webinar, ERS Economist Samantha Padilla provided an overview of the Commodity Costs and Returns data and walked participants through accessing and using the data product.
