The article highlights the marketing strategies of several executives in the grain industry for 2008 and 2009.

Meanwhile, David Sheppard, managing director of Gleadell Agriculture, stated that he would sell 10-20% based on a conservative yield estimate if he is confident that he is going to get all of his wheat drilled and know the costs of production.
