Food and ag leaders confident about the future, cautious about investments
Michigan farmers and food processors remain optimistic about the future of their industry. That’s what economists from MSU Product Center learned when they conducted the second Michigan Agriculture and Food Index, released Feb. 4 during the annual ANR Week Luncheon. The index, which was based on a survey conducted in December 2013, gauges the current business climate of the state’s food and agriculture system. A rating of 100 on the index is considered neutral; ratings above 100 signal increasingly positive confidence, and below 100, increasingly negative confidence.
