At this time of year, the most common question that I get from producers is, “Should I sell my wheat?” For an extension economist, this is a loaded question. If my answer is yes, then the price will go up $0.30 per bushel next week and I will get another less pleasant call. If I say no, the price will go down $0.30 the next week, and I get to have another conversation.
