The La Nina impact on the Illinois winter remains somewhat up in the air among meteorologists, but a national weather expert cautions farmers about how weather could impact commodity prices. Dr. Elwynn Taylor, climatologist at Iowa State, says La Nina tends to lower the trend line yields and that could have an impact on grain prices.
Dr. Taylor says climate conditions in South America bring a lot of volatility to weather where crops are grown, like the Midwest.
Dr. Taylor spoke with producers at the Peoria farm Show this week.
