Overall farmer sentiment improved in August, but inflationary concerns are starting to mount.

WEST LAFAYETTE — The Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer improved in August, up 4 points to a reading of 138.

The modest rise was attributable to improvements in both of the barometer’s sub-indices. The Index of Current Conditions rose 9 points to a reading of 152, and the Index of Future Expectations rose 2 points to a reading of 132.
