๐Ÿ“ˆ 2022 Crop Receipt Projections

Following the release of December's position report we start running a forward projection on ABC form 1 crop receipts, every month, to get an idea of the total size of the crop. 

The methodology we use for our crop receipt projections is different from our in-season machine learning forecasts. Our 2022 in-season forecasts are complete and have not been updated since we released a final forecast in July. 

For our crop receipt projection, we only use ABC form 1 crop receipt data for current and historical years. The model we use looks for a pattern in how crop receipts are coming in month over month.

As of March ABC form 1 crop receipts, 2022 final crop receipts are projected to be 2.55 B - 2.56 B lbs. You can reference this in the image below 2022/2023 marketing year is in light blue

You'll notice 2022 crop receipts receiving pattern below looks very similar to 2019 and 2020.
