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.
