    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 11 months ago

    It’s been over two decades since the first Roundup Ready crops were planted in commercial fields. At the time of introduction, the technology was revolutionary for farmers, who found a highly effective and convenient chemistry to control a broad spectrum of weeds. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans quickly became the norm in fields across the United States, and as a result, application of glyphosate increased dramatically... The agricultural community certainly made mistakes with the introduction and use of Roundup Ready technology... Following the label isn’t only the law, it’s also one of the best ways to ensure that new technology remains available in the future...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published 1 years, 4 months ago

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate. Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy... Since these changes were passed, Brazil has seen a distinct rise in new deforestation, as soy and cattle farmers have little respect for laws without consequences... There has even been talk of the Ruralists allowing for mining and other agricultural activities within lands scheduled for conservation...

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 4 weeks ago

    Understanding Agrilend and the MERCOSUR

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    The MERCOSUR is a powerful dominant force in international global markets and originally began with its Members;Bolivia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina as direct Member Countries, in South America, however it is rapidly gaining momentum by its cooperative Associate Member Countries in Central America and its international prowess relies on its ability to cooperate confidential public private initiative agreements with cooperating countries desiring to do corporate business attached with attractive concensions by partnering with MERCOSUR for the sake of obtaining finance, capital, agricultural export or import, natural resources and as an exchange for favor... The most important part of the declaration however, was the Agreement that Cooperation, Harmonization, Technological Innovation and Monetary Integration of a number of Agricultural Sectors of the Economy was desirable and therefore the creation or implementation of mechanism to address the Financing of Agriculture is Paramount to its Global Agenda... They include The Council of The Common Market ( “ Council”) the Common Market Group ( “ The Group”) the MERCOSUR Commerce Commission ( “ MCC”), the Joint Parliament Commision, the Economic and Social Consultative Forum ( “ Forum”), the Administrative Secretariat ( “ Secretariat”), the Permanent Appellate Tribunal ( “ the Tribunal”) and the Committee of Permanent Representatives ( “ CPR”) The Plan of Agrilend in 2018-2019 is to provide unlimited capital to The United States Agricultural Industry as well as expanding its American brand to the Latin American Markets through ts distribution and prowess through MERCOSUR by its Member Countries or Associate Member Countries... In both organizations, the Council is controlled by the member states and has the power to create policy or “ community law” while the other institutions, the Commission in the EU and the Group in MERCOSUR, represent the proposer and implementer of policy... It also has under the Olivios Protocol, the power to consider claims by individuals relating to member state violations of the Treaty and community law...

    Citizens Weekly Newsletter: October 26, 2018

    By Angie Setzer

    Published 9 months ago

    Politics, poor export pace and major harvest progress were the main factors in this week’s trade. A failure to push to new levels after breaching technical resistance last week played a role as well as values spent much of their week moving lower before some strength returned late in the week. Political rhetoric ramped up this week as we are less than 2 weeks from the mid-term election... While it is obvious that the trade war between the US and China has had a major impact when it comes to Chinese demand—exports to the country are down 97% this marketing year, the idea that the American farmer is abandoning ship as a whole may be flawed... In addition, Bolsonaro has made it very clear the policies he looks to impose would fundamentally change the way the Brazilian political system and economy would work, likely strengthening the country’s currency long-term, potentially making their agricultural products more expensive in the global marketplace...

    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    Business valuations are frequently performed when one company acquires another company, when a company is targeted for an acquisition, when a company’s capital structure is reorganized, when a company splits up, or when a company enters bankruptcy in liquidation or reorganization. The transactions may include entire or partial acquisitions, divestitures, liquidation, or recapitalization. Mergers will generally require both companies to be valued, while an acquisition may require only a single valuation... Oftentimes investors retain Agrilend just for our opinion on a target Agricultural company in this niche just for this reason alone... Intangibles dictate your market share in the agricultural business no matter if you are producing milk, cheese, beef, pork, seeds, grain or corn to name a few...

    The problem with traditional Agricultural Lending

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 1 years, 2 months 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... Simply put the more liabilities the bank has the more valuable its assets are, because having more liabilities allows federally regulated FDIC Insured Institutions to borrow more and more money from the Federal Reserve, making itself more money, however for the agricultural business everytime it borrows more and more funds from the bank its credit rating drops from A to C paper putting itself at risk of default and eventually allowing the bank to own the Agribusiness... We can observe the characteristic shape of average default rates of loans provided to agricultural businesses by commercial banks by detailed rating class, growing far more than the proportionally for the lowest ( riskiest) ratings... For the agricultural business with a Caa1-C rating, an analyst can observe clearly default rates are approximated at 12% to as high as 19% for a 12 month or 1 year loan...
