    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 1 years, 3 months ago

    Technology has been an integral part of agriculture since at least 5,000 years ago, documented through the use of ploughs in ancient Sumeria... Still, some in the industry are unsure of the latest development to disrupt agriculture... The result? Walmart’s VP of food safety, Frank Yiannis, stated the company was “encouraged” by the potential for reducing the timeline of investigations into food-borne illness from weeks to seconds... If blockchain technology can help farmers and food producers from the developing world, as well as multi-national mega-corporations, why not streamline and accelerate the distribution of your products?What is the blockchain, and how are these applications disrupting agriculture?In a nutshell, blockchain technology is creating new economic opportunities through decentralization, while enhancing security.

    · Headlines Thursday claimed China is willing to purchase another $30 billion worth of US agricultural products. This would be a huge development as reports indicate the purchases would be in addition to the estimated $20 billion in pre-trade war imports, taking the total US agricultural import figure to $50 billion... Obviously, anything less than an agreement or an extension indicating an agreement is close could weigh heavily on the market... We are seeing some point to slower than expected corn sales as a negative factor, though shipments still remain above what is needed to make USDA expectations and this year’s export pace has been a little against trend with many of the sales made much earlier than normal due to limited global supply availability the last half of the year... · The USDA also released its Ag Outlook Forum figures this week...

    How the small Farmer can Acquire more Farms using Leverage.

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    Going Private and Leveraged BuyoutGoing private refers to the transformation of a public corporation into a privately held firm. A leveraged buyout (LBO), financed largely by borrowing, is the acquisition of the stock or assets of a public company by a small group of investors... A variant of the LBO going-private transaction is the management buyout (MBO) in which a segment of the company is sold to its managers...

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    The problem with traditional Agricultural Lending is beyond Portfolio Theory, Diversification, Credit or Operational Risk, as well as Financial Servicing Capacity to service debt obligations in unpredictable markets predicated by supply and demand... Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation(FDIC) has a very regulated and structurally implemented framework that governs Asset Liability Management which has a strong impact to the profitability of Agricultural Businesses where Commodity prices fluctuate according to Risk-Neutrality. (FDIC) Maintains an Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management. The Office of the Comptroller of the currency (OCC), Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS), and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) (collectively, the agencies) in conjunction with the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) are issuing this guidance to provide consistent interagency expectations on sound practices for managing funding and liquidity risk. The guidance summarizes the principles of sound liquidity risk management that the agencies have issued in the past and, where appropriate, harmonizes these principles with the international statement recently issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision titled Principles for Sound Liquidity Risk Management and SupervisionThe exact roles and perimeter around Asset Liability Management can vary significantly from one bank (or other financial institutions) to another depending on the business model adopted and can encompass a broad area of risks...
