Creighton University’s Rural Mainstreet Index (RMI) has been released. While it has increased 11 points from December 2016, the farm economy is still below growth neutral.
The index is a measurement from ag bankers in 10 states. The biggest gain may be the retail sales index, which improved from 40.7 in November to 52.4 in December.
Hear from Ernie Goss, professor of economics at Creighton University, about the latest RMI on AgDay above.
