Farm Profitability and Finance

Farm profitability is a topic of frequent discussion in agricultural circles, though it has notably declined in the past 10 years in the US, for corn and soy farmers in particular. There are a myriad of variables that affect whether or not a farming operation will be profitable, from climate to yield to input costs to trade conditions.  Understanding how to improve farm profitability requires an understanding of both the simplicity of supply and demand economics but also understanding multivariate conditions that affect growers.
