    How To Value a Farm Agricultural Business

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 5 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...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 1 week 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...

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 5 months ago

    How Yield Champions Use Cover Crops for Growing Higher Bushels

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 5 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...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published 10 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...
