GrowingOn® 2015

Farm Credit Services of America (FCSAmerica) is proud to present GrowingOn® 2015, an educational meeting featuring information and insights to help producers plan, reduce risk and manage revenue for the upcoming crop year. GrowingOn meetings will be hosted from December 2014 through January 2015 in 30 locations across Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.

Back by popular demand, Steven D. Johnson, Ph.D., Farm & Ag Business Management Specialist, Iowa State University Extension, will present Leveraging Risk Management Tools to Manage Crop Revenue. Gain information to help you plan for the 2015 growing season, including estimated crop prices and costs, marketing and crop insurance strategies, and new farm bill decisions and choices.

Crop insurance has been a tried and proven way of managing the risks inherent with agriculture. The new farm bill sets crop insurance as its cornerstone. Learn more about the changes for 2015 and what key considerations will go into 2015 crop insurance decisions from an FCSAmerica crop insurance specialist.

FCSAmerica staff, including Bill Davis, Chief Credit Officer, will share steps for minimizing operational risks of rising interest rates; and Mark Jensen, Chief Risk Officer, will talk about farmland value trends and the risks present in today’s farmland market.
