FAPRI-MU Bulletin #01-19: We calculate breakeven RIN prices for E85 and E15 that cover a range of distribution costs. Although uncertainties exist, breakeven RIN prices that could induce E15 expansion at the margin might exceed those for E85 under some situations. Historical data indicate that E85 has sometimes expanded after periods of time when the RIN price might have covered additional distribution costs of E85, although there is no clear relationship and other factors doubtlessly also affect E85 and E15 use.
FAPRI-MU Report #04-18: 2018 is expected to see record levels of meat trade. The decrease in feed prices from peaks around 2012 has fueled an expansion in the meat sector in the major producing parts of the globe. Demand has also been strong as a result of rising global incomes and population growth.
FAPRI-MU Bulletin #03-18: Net farm income is projected to decline in 2018 and 2019 before recovering in later years. The farm debt/asset ratio continues to increase.
