Risk Management

Farmers face many different risks – from production, price and financial risks to legal and environmental risks. For many farmers, price risk is often top of mind; the notion that the selling price of their crops will decline to a less-than-profitable level can be a constant concern. To manage this risk, they must achieve a balance between the goals of locking in a profit level and preserving market opportunity.

Our mission is to help you manage the risks inherent to your business. Our expert partners in Grain PhD will work with you to meet the needs of your individual operation. These agricultural specialists will help review your individual marketing plans and provide sound recommendations that can help you enhance cash marketing decisions.
