UK - Corn & Soybean Working Group
Early Management Decision Meeting
Issue (Who Cares and Why?): Each fall, producers are encouraged to purchase inputs early to take advantage of cheaper costs, possibly to reduce tax burdens.
What Has Been Done?: Two meetings were conducted to help farmers make informed decisions on their purchases.
Impact?: Approximately 86% of the respondents, representing 100,000 acres felt more confident about their management decisions after the meeting. Ninety-five % thought the meeting was valuable enough to them to attend a similar meeting the next year.
