Grain Marketing Discussion Group
Carl L. German, List Owner

The Grain Marketing Discussion Group is an electronic grain marketing club that provides grain and oilseed producers, merchandisers, traders, analysts, industry representatives, educators, and other interested parties a timely forum for addressing grain-marketing issues. Participants in the discussion group can enter or receive information on any and all aspects of grain marketing, marketing alternatives, and marketing strategies. Participants receive a weekly grain market analysis/update. To subscribe to the grain marketing discussion group send a message to clgerman@udel.edu with the only message in the text that reads: subscribe grn-mktdg@udel.edu. This discussion group operates as a closed group, meaning the integrity of the site is maintained by listings to the group having to be approved by the list owner.
