  • How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 10 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...

    Trichoderma's advantages on control soil pathogens

    By Darren Chan

    Published 4 weeks ago

    Here we would like to introduce trichoderma‘s effect on control soil pathogens. Trichoderma grows on the surface of roots, where it provides disease control and enhances root growth. Its spores survive in the soil, but the food it lives on is mostly secreted from the root surface. Since the fungus multiplies on its own, it is different from seed-applied fungicides. First, only a little needs to be applied because it will grow to continually cover the roots...

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 11 months ago

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry... Compost still grows grass; chickens still like fly larvae... ”While technological advancements certainly have the potential to make farming a less manual labor intensive occupation, they also make administrative and business roles more efficient... ”Regardless of how one views tech-savvy workers as compared with traditionally skilled and knowledgeable labor, one thing is sure: technological advancements in agriculture, coupled with challenges unique to 21st century farmers, demand that farmers consider their options when hiring farm labor...

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 11 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 Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 6 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...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 10 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...

    Early Cover Crop Benefits: What Can You Expect in the First Year?

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 11 months ago

    In 1995, Pennsylvania farmer Steve Groff was speaking at an event when he asked the audience the question: Do cover crops pay off?His thinking at the time was that he had been no-tilling since 1982, and maybe if he no-tilled long enough, he wouldn’t need them... A variety of factors can influence the early benefits of cover crops, including the soil’s current health and conditions, tillage practices, species selection and overall management... ” Cover crop topgrowth can aid water availability and weed controlIt depends on how much cover crop growth there is, but if farmers end up with a good mulch from it, that can increase soil water infiltration rates, Kladivko says. It can also reduce evaporation rates from the soil, which means there’s the potential for greater water availability for the cash crop at some point in the summer... “Because we’ve got good varieties out there now that are short-season, you’re not going to really sacrifice yield if you get the right one...

    4 Steps to Building Soil Organic Matter in the South

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 9 months ago

    As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results. Consider the following findings from SARE and the NRCS:A study of soils in Michigan demonstrated potential crop-yield increases of about 12% for every 1% organic matter... ”This is why farmers will typically see a yield bump when they first till, but after a couple years the soil won’t perform as well due to less carbon available for consumption by the microbes...

    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 month ago

    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... Stott says you’re not going to see a significant change in your soil test values until there’s been at least a 0...
