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.
