๐Ÿ“ˆ Crop Receipt Projections

Following the December position report we run a forward projection on ABC form 1 crop receipts 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 2023 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 May ABC form 1 crop receipts, final crop receipts are projected to be 2.440 - 2.444 B lbs. You can reference this in the image below 2023/2024 marketing year is in light blue.
