Brian Willott is an American who manages agricultural projects. The commodities involved range from soybeans and cotton to edible beans, coffee and eucalyptus. Willott’s management accomplishments in Brazil have been recognized by the local state government in 2005 when his farm was chosen by the state Secretary of Agriculture as a case study in success. Many Brazilian and international media groups have also featured Willott and his group, including Forbes magazine, CNBC, Top Producer magazine, Folia Sao Paulo, and Correio Braziliense. Willott’s Brazilian operation was the only non-US farm featured in Farm Futures magazines’ “Secrets of the Best Managed Farms” section.

Brian’s primary responsibilities revolved around market outlook and the maintenance and improvement of the current U.S. crops models: corn, soybeans, wheat, sorghum, barley, oats, cotton, rice, sugar, sunflowers, rapeseed, rye, and hay. Secondary areas of emphasis include policy analysis, model development, and coordinating the release of analysis with FAPRI’s partner universities. Brian also made the baseline projections for net farm income, value of exports, government cost, and value of land.
