    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 7 months 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... Mergers will generally require both companies to be valued, while an acquisition may require only a single valuation... Typically most business valuations are performed to determine the proposed value of a business, Agrilend focuses on the enterprise value of the business which includes all equity stakeholders or shareholders, interest bearing debt, net working assets, fixed assets as well as intangibles also described as goodwill. The reasoning implicit in The Agrilend model is the typical business valuation of an ongoing concern will provide a methodology for valuing its monetary efficiency by the market, asset, and income approach, however when dealing with established food manufacturing brands there is a different element to be considered to determine which constitutes its inherent customer base and brand positioning and therefore the multiple the target company can be purchased at or resold to a secondary private equity group, lender, or investor with an emphasis proportionally irrespective of discounted cash flows, capitalization rate, risk free rate, debt capital structure, capital asset pricing method, equity risk premium or company specific risk premium. In food manufacturing established brands with distribution in retail, it is still necessary to gauge the capital structure to determine the weighted average cost of capital to make a decision for a minority or majority purchase, however Agrilend places an emphasis on this intangible value with greater weight...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 8 months ago

    There are many factors that can influence corn yield... “If you apply synthetic nitrogen, there’s a whole complex process that has to take place to convert those into plant-available amino acid forms,” Hedrick explains... Russell Hedrick uses a Yetter 5000 Stalk Devastator on the front of his planter to roll and crimp cover crops as he plants into them... He does this by submitting samples of his cover crop biomass to the University of Georgia to determine how much nitrogen is in his cover crops, when it’s available and how long it’ll be available for... “Then once we started seeing some of the benefit of that, we went to variable-rate fertilizer, per-acre grid sampling, and that took us to another level...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 2 weeks ago

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms... However, due to various external factors, the growth of roots is still limited to a certain extent, such as hard soil texture, drought and water shortage, which will affect to a certain extent... Therefore, during the growth of plants, the available phosphorus around the roots is quickly absorbed, and the peripheral phosphorus is difficult to replenish rapidly, resulting in a small range of “phosphorus-depleted areas” around the roots of the plants... Mycorrhiza produces auxinDuring the growth process, ectomycorrhizal fungi can produce a variety of growth substances that stimulate plant growth, such as auxin, cytodinin, gibberellius, and vitamin B1...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 7 months ago

    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... com and is an agronomist for Legacy Seeds, says there is value in rotating — especially if you’re using brassicas and peas... “I think that farmers often times don’t see the value of planting quality seed for cover crops because it’s ‘just a cover crop... “And the next year we plant wheat and we don’t spray any grass killer, then we possibly end up with annual ryegrass in the wheat or malting barley or some other high-value crop...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 3 months ago

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi... But there are steps farmers can take to help AMF be more of an advantage than a disadvantage for their crops... Alice Roy-Bolduc and Mohamed Hijri, authors of the article “The Use of Mycorrhizae to Enhance Phosphorus Uptake: A Way Out The Phosphorus Crisis,” say that in addition to the larger surface area, phosphorus is also highly immobile and phosphate ions become rapidly bound with cations, making it unavailable to plants... He adds that it also helps ensure there will be something available to feed the mycorrhizae...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published 12 months ago

    In the past few years, we have made a concerted effort to increase the usage of cover crops and other conservation practices on our farm... In fact, I would argue that if intensively managed, conservation practices should significantly enhance yields. The cornerstone of any good crop production system involving conservation techniques is the establishment of cover crops... ● From 95 to 113 degrees, 15 percent of soil moisture is used for plant growth and 85 percent for evapotranspiration... Cover crops help row crops access additional nutrients in the soil profile through four different biological processes: 1) The breakdown of carbon from decaying cover crop residue, 2) Roots from the cover crops produce “exudate acids” which convert minerals in the soil into plant available nutrients 3) The cover crops act as a host plant for arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, which are microbes that have a direct effect on plant health and nutrient storage capacity of the soil within the root zone of the plant and 4) By producing additional Nitrogen with leguminous cover crops...
