RealAg Radio, June 22: Market sell-offs, sky-high inflation, and the impact of the container crisis on Canadian soybeans
While inflation continues to soar based on new data released by Statistics Canada on Wednesday, commodity markets have tumbled over the last few days over fears of a recession.

- Joe Vaclavik, president of Standard Grain on the commodity market sell-off;
- A product spotlight with Holly Little of Acadian Plant Health;
- JP Gervais, chief economist with Farm Credit Canada, on inflation data, the odds of a recession, and the future of the Canadian ag economy;
- Brian Innes, executive director of Soy Canada, on the organization’s goals for Canadian soybean production, the shipping container crisis’ impact on Canadian soybeans (soybeans are the largest crop user of containers in Canada), and more!
