    What The Intelligent Investor Can Teach Us About Farming

    By The Crossover

    Published Apr 20, 2018 

    Graham is famous for saying that in the short term markets are like voting machines, tallying up the emotional sentiments of the market participants but in the long run they act like weighing machines, reflecting the accumulated value of the underlying business... How do you determine this value? Is it based on discounted future cash flow projections? Is it based on marketable asset value? The best method of valuation will depend on what you're trying to value and also how long you plan on holding it... But we can and do sell commodities all year long... Having a long-term perspective:Graham believed that one of the best pieces of psychological armor an investor could have was having a long-term perspective. By thinking in terms of decades rather than months or a year or two, the intelligent investor could more easily have the discipline to pass up trendy or mediocre investments in the short term to be able to take advantage of great investment opportunities in the long term...

    Retirement Tax Planning for Farmers

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Mar 15, 2020 

    The decision to retire is often met with either enthusiasm or fear. Some farmers are counting down the days until retirement, and others are scared to retire because they aren’t sure what they will do without work. Many farmers who have worked so hard for decades have not developed any hobbies outside of farming... The first question that farmers must answer is, What do I want to do in retirement? What type of lifestyle does the farmer want to live? Do they want to continue to live modestly and in a rural area, or are they ready to cash in on a lifetime of hard work, move to the beach, and go fishing every day? Having a solid answer to this question is a pre-requisite to evaluating the financial and tax issues that follow... Farmers and other taxpayers can gift money to others without the recipient incurring a tax liability as long as the gift does not exceed $15,000 per person in 2020...

    The Future of Fruit Farming: MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 13, 2019 

    Pineapple pineapple cultivation Of late, the talk of the town seems to be revolving around the planting of MD2 pineapple. The questions is, why is this MD2 pineapple so popular?Pineapple is known to contain highest amount of vitamin C among all various types of fruits. It also contains a fair amount of magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron and develops a bromelin, of which is a type of enzyme... This means that in the long term, even though under usual circumstances normal pineapple breed would bear fruit in 6-8 months, by taking 16 months of MD2 pineapple production cycle in count, MD2 would bear 4 fruits in 16 months compared to 2 for normal pineapple breed...

    Top 5 Reasons Why Black Oats Are The Best Beginner's Cover Crop

    By Cover Crops

    Published Sep 14, 2018 

    It's a fact: cover crops tend to make good farmers into great farmers and average farmers into bad farmers. Cover crops work. But, management is key and the learning curve can be steep. If you've been sitting on the sidelines in the past but are interested in jumping on the cover crop bandwagon, don't be intimidated... They also take longer to decompose, thus tying up scavenged nitrogen that we’d rather have available to our cash crops...

    "Manure is an excellent source of valuable nutrients. However, it is susceptible to nutrient loss and impacts to water quality when applied long before a crop is present to take up the nutrients that manure provides. Cover crops can help to bridge this gap." - @Brian Dougherty
