Precision ag maximizes yield, commodity marketing maximizes profits
By Ryan Ridley
Farmers use precision ag to maximize yields, but how can they maximize profits outside of the field?
“If you’re making efforts to maximize your yield with precision agriculture, you will want to maximize your profits, and commodity marketing is one way to do that,” explains Moe Agostino. “Precision ag is about growing your crops as effectively and efficiently as possible. Your commodity marketing should also be done as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
This was a message that Moe conveyed to attendees of the 2020 Farms.com Virtual Precision Agriculture Conference & Ag Technology Showcase.
He’s the Chief Commodity Strategist with Farms.com Risk Management.
Moe delivers a global outlook of soybeans, canola, corn, and wheat and discusses what farmers can expect in 2021 as a result of COVID-19, trade wars and the U.S. election.
