    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 7, 2019 

    While there are numerous reasons for using cover crops, a primary one is improving soil health. In fact, it’s the one benefit most farmers using cover crops have experienced: In the most recent Cover Crop Survey Annual Report, of those who rated the statement, “Using cover crops has improved soil health on my farm,” 86% agreed or strongly agreed. The report notes that it’s interesting and heartening that “soil health reflects an embrace of a long-term, hard-to-quantify benefit of cover crops, and that for the past two surveys, it has achieved the top spot by garnering 86% of the responses. ”While soil health may be harder to quantify than benefits like biomass production or input savings, there are ways of measuring how cover crops are making a difference in your soil... While penetrometers run around $150-$300, Stott says you can check with your local NRCS office or university to see if there’s one you could borrow, if you’re not interested in purchasing one...

    Impact of Final Opportunity Zone Regulations on Farmers & Agribusinesses

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Jan 8, 2020 

    On December 19, 2019, Treasury released the final regulations for the much-discussed Opportunity Zone program. Overall, these final regulations did a great job of answering most of the open farming & agribusiness questions proposed by tax practitioners. While we will discuss these in detail, taxpayers must first have a solid understanding of the basic Opportunity Zone rules and benefits. The Opportunity Zone initiative was enacted as part of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017... Other land improvements such as clearing, cleaning, grading, rehabbing, or purchasing business assets used in the farming trade or business should qualify as Qualified Opportunity Zone business property...

    Cost Segregation Studies in the Agriculture Industry

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Oct 29, 2020 

    Most farmers and ranchers have a decent understanding of tax depreciation. When a business purchases assets, the business entity is allowed to write off the value of the asset purchased over the life of the asset. Land, however, is not depreciable as the value of the dirt & minerals does not decrease over time like the value of structures, barns, fences, etc. When a business purchases a ranch or farm, the value of those existing structures, equipment, and infrastructure can be depreciated for tax purposes... When purchasing a ranch or farm, taxpayers often allocate the vast majority of the purchase to the land and building(s) purchased...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 15, 2018 

    You probably know that having a crop rotation is a good thing. Growing different crops back to back provides several benefits, such as preventing pests and disease, improving soil health and reducing fertilizer inputs, all of which can boost your crop yields and your bottom line. By adding cover crops to the mix, you’re diversifying your rotation even more. But have you thought about rotating your cover crops? Should you be using the same cover crop species back to back, year after year?Dave Robison, who runs the blog PlantCoverCrops... “Whether the farmer is growing his own cereal grains or whether they’re purchasing grains from another farmer, they really need to consider the cost that they may be incurring by adding in additional disease pressure to the farm,” he says...

    Delaware Statutory Trust – Implication to Landowners & Farmers

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Sep 15, 2020 

    The Delaware Statutory Trusts (DST) is a newer investment vehicle that allows real estate property owners, including farmers and ag landowners, to purchase tenants in common ownership in passive investment properties. DSTs are separate legal entities and are becoming a more popular choice for Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 exchanges. Revenue Ruling 2004-86 allows a DST to own 100% of a real estate asset and allows a maximum of 499 investors to own an interest in the trust... Rather than simply purchasing one or maybe two replacement properties in a Section 1031 Exchange, the DST often invests in many different properties as part of the fund’s strategy... Rather than purchasing a single asset (or single stock), a DST (or mutual fund) uses pooled funds from investors to acquire many different assets...

    Blockchain & the Future of Fruits & Vegetables Supply Chain

    By Ammar Alshami

    Published Jan 22, 2019 

    What is Blockchain Technology?Regardless of whether you're completely new to the digital currency space, odds are you've known about blockchain and you may even have a rough thought regarding what it is as of now. It's a sufficiently enough concept to grasp: at its most fundamental dimension, it is an exact record of everything which has ever occurred on a given network. That may not sound so impressive straight off the bat, but its significance is pretty great. On the web pretty much everything is hackable – the ramifications of something which is corruption-resistant are immense... Regardless of whether it's the food business, the clothing business, or some other purchaser merchandise, today’s end users are becoming more conscious of their purchasing choices and need to be increasingly educated with regards to supply chain processes...

    Become more profitable by understanding and controlling transaction costs

    By John Moody

    Published Apr 24, 2018 

    Imagine your farm or business handles six hundred thousand dollars per year. The transactions vary in size from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars for the most part. Thousands and thousands of transactions. You know that your margins are tight - just a few percentage points separate you from being in the red or black... Some people became upset! So the stations instead started offering a discount to those who paid by cash - everyone ended up happy! In some areas, even to this day certain gas stations still give a discount to those who use cash instead of credit - I pass one every time I head to town and chuckle, since most likely people who go in to pay cash also end up purchasing way overpriced over stuff that more than offsets the small savings the station offers for cash buyers...

    "Once users enter their farm-specific data, the Drone Flight Calculator determines economic returns on either a per-acre or per-season basis. The tool is free to use, and Measure does not collect the information that is entered."

    Posted By Grain Dryer
    Mar 28, 2019 

    The benefits of the drying process

    Risk-free storage
    Grain dryers quickly reduce the moisture content of the freshly harvested grain to safe levels and allow for its long-term storage. 

    Flexibility for the farmer
    Farmers are free to decide when to carry out drying whatever the weather conditions and to sell the grain when the market price is most favourable, generally months after threshing. 

    Increased value
    As well as drying the grain, the dryer removes the impurities collected in the field. This improves the quality of the end product and therefore its market value. 

    Return on the investment
    Purchasing a dryer requires a relatively modest financial commitment and the value of the used machine remains high over the years, thereby guaranteeing an excellent return on the investment.

    Standing by farmers is our commitment at a worldwide level, which also, and especially, means taking care of the whole planet and making decisions focusing on environmental sustainability.
