    Variable-Rating Fertilizer: Does It Pay Off?

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 12, 2020 

    For growers who are trying to follow the “4Rs” of nutrient stewardship — applying the right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time, and in the right place, as set forth by The Fertilizer Institute — variable-rate technology (VRT) can help them tackle two of the four, as it can determine the right rate and the right place based on prescription maps... Consider a study conducted in North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota from 2000-2003, where fields were divided so that nitrogen fertilizer was either variable-rated or applied uniformly. As the North Dakota State University (NDSU) article explains, using nitrogen fertilizer recommendations at the time and variable-rate applying it on a zone approach provided no economic advantage over the uniform rate. However, the same article cites a study conducted for more than 10 years on a 40-acre field in North Dakota where variable-rating nitrogen resulted in a $14... A case study on Genesee, Idaho, farmer Eric Odberg also highlights the savings some growers can reap from variable-rating...

    The Advantages of Subsurface Drip Irrigation in Corn Production

    By Mario Petkovski

    Published Sep 9, 2020 

    There are different pipe arrangement variations, but the pipes are usually placed at a distance of 38 to 84 and at a depth of 6 to 10 below the soil surface... History of Subsurface Drip Irrigation Technological advances within the plastics industry have led to significant progress for irrigation systems... These methods, including SDI, have improved production and yield in scientific experiments for various crops... The amount of costs largely depends on the choice of materials, the availability of a water source, water quality, filtration method, the type of soil, and the degree of automation of the system itself... Vories [2] explains that to achieve maximum corn yields using subsurface drip irrigation, the system needs to replace 60% of the estimated daily crop evapotranspiration (ET)...

    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 14, 2018 

    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...

    Comparison between pivot and drip irrigation in corn cultivation

    By Miriam Pitzalis

    Updated Aug 19, 2020 

    The main problem concerning corn cultivation is water stress: the most critical phases that suffer from water shortages, which can lead to significant production losses, are from the emission of the plume to flowering and the ripening stage. In order to obtain high yields, it is necessary to satisfy the evapotranspiration demand of the crop, which is between 0... The market offers various systems including the most well-known and widely-used option of central pivot and the newer solution of drip irrigation. What are the differences between the two systems?Among the relevant differences to consider is the investment cost, adaptability to the rotation, weather conditions, irrigation availability and the efficiency of any fertigation... In practice, these figures will be influenced by various factors such as the yield and market price of corn, the extent of cultivation and the effective duration of the system, which depends on the proper design and maintenance...

    Valuation, Transfer and Commercialization of Agricultural Technologies in Korea

    Authors: Hyung-Min Jung

    Publisher: FFTC-AP

    ABSTRACT

    Technology valuation offers basic data for technology transfer negotiations. To expedite technology transfers, outstanding technologies need to be invented, and transfer costs should be reasonable. One of the most important factors in commercializing a technology is the smooth procurement of business funds. Technology financing helps companies to procure business funds through technology valuation for technologies with outstanding potential. Measures for technology financing in Korea’s agriculture and food sector include interest subsidy, IP security, IP guarantee, venture capital and crowd-funding.
