This second part of a two-part report on agricultural commodities examines present and future prices for key food inputs like wheat, corn, rice, cocoa, sugar, soy and milk. Recent developments will also be used to predict prices longer term. What, if anything, can the industry do to mitigate potentially catastrophic price volatility for food inputs?
