One of the realities of crop and livestock production is that many variables we deal with are beyond our control – weather, global price variations, and more. So we study and evaluate everything that is within our control. How can I increase yields, reduce costs, or improve efficiency? Should I invest in new technologies that increase productivity and minimize inputs? Should I secure supply contracts for pricing stability? Or is it better to join buying groups and benefit from economies of scale? Farmers around the world are innovating across their businesses to advance the viability of their operations.
