COVID-19’s effect on agriculture has been much like what it has done to the rest of the world: It’s always surprising us with what we don’t know.
Rabobank is a multinational banking and financial services company headquartered in Utrecht, Netherlands, and a global leader in food and agriculture financing and sustainability-oriented banking.
Rabobank's research arm, which has analysts across the globe, recently released a report titled “The Grain & Oilseed Sector in a Post-COVID-19 World.”
The report outlines seven areas of major change impacting grains and oilseeds as a result of the world's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Iowa native Stephen Nicholson is a senior analyst for grains and oilseeds with Rabobank and the lead author of the research article and spoke to Grain Talk about this report.
Based in St. Louis, Nicholson has more than 30 years of experience in cash grain markets, hedging, commodity/ingredient procurement, commodity risk management and commodity analysis.
Nicholson holds a bachelor’s degree in farm operations and agricultural education, and a master’s in agricultural economics, both from Iowa State University in Ames, IA.
