Agricultural Outlook (AO) ceased publication in December 2002. A new magazine, AmberWaves, replaced Agricultural Outlook, FoodReview, and Rural America in February 2003. This archive contains AO publications covering commodity markets and trade, farm policy, and other food- and agriculture-related topics. Each release includes data on individual commodities, farm income, the general economy, agricultural trade, and related issues.
Commodity and trade outlook data and information continue to be available on the ERS website. Additional commodity- or topic-specific information may be found in ERS Briefing Rooms.

Renewable Identification Number (RIN) for biofuels created by the EPA as a unit of compliance to assist with the implementation of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which currently sets annual mandates on renewable transportation fuels through 2022. This report was created to facilitate an understanding of the RIN market, which is heavily tied to understanding the effects of RFS mandates on the biofuel and feedstock markets. This report discusses the details of the RIN system and its role in the implementation of the current RFS2, and examines supply, use, prices, and trade for biofuels and biofuel feedstocks both domestically and prospectively in major producing, importing, and exporting countries. Additionally, the report examines historical data and USDA baseline projections in order to generate projections of the biofuel and feedstock markets. The report primarily focuses on ethanol and corn, biodiesel and soybeans. It also contains information on other biofuel feedstocks and second-generation biofuels such as cellulosic and biofuel co-products such as distiller's grains.

This publication examines the season-average price, production, supply, use, and trade for feed grains t in major exporting and importing countries. The report focuses on corn, but covers sorghum, barley, oats, hay, and wheat as well. Contains future projections production, supply, use, and trade made based on weather conditions and current agricultural and industrial developments.

This report is a supplement to Feed Outlook, with a primary focus on corn. It discusses the production, consumption, supply, prices, and trade of feed grains and the domestic and global developments that contributed to changes in the above, such as an increase in biofuel production. World coarse grain outlooks and forecasts in production, supply, and consumption are also included within the report.

This archive contains reports from 1995-2003. Recent issues of this annual report can be found in the Global Food Security Briefing Room on the ERS website. The publication examine the near- and long-term prospects for food gaps in low-income, developing countries and food-aid availabilities in donor countries. Factors considered include food supply and demand, prices, trade, food production, population growth, foreign exchange availability, and food consumption and nutrition.

This archived report does not contain recent information or data and was last published April 1999. Included in this report are annual models for U.S. farm prices for corn and wheat, based on market factors as well as government agricultural commodity programs. The pricing relationships utilize a stocks-to-use modeling framework to capture the effects of market supply and demand factors on price determination. This formulation is augmented by factors that represent the changing role of agricultural policies, particularly government price support and stockholding programs. Model properties and model performance measures are presented. Additionally, recent price-forecasting applications of the models are discussed. The relatively simple structure of the estimated price models and their small data requirements lend themselves to use in price-forecasting applications in conjunction with market analysis of supply and demand conditions.
