The latest Purdue University/CME Ag Economy Barometer showed a slight recovery for the month of May, up 7 points. That follows a dramatic drop in April when producer sentiments plummeted to 103. While outlooks start to improve, the Ag Economy Barometer is still nearly 40% below its all-time high of 168 set in February of this year.

What's driving that optimism? Dr. Jim Mintert of Purdue will join Farm Journal Live to talk about the data behind the increasing optimism.
