Creating a Top Farm

K-State agricultural economists Gregg Ibendahl and Terry Griffin review their new analysis of what makes a top farm economically in Kansas, based on 10 years of Kansas Farm Management Association data from actual grain production farms across the state:  they ranked several hundred farms for their economic performance, and then evaluated the importance of five factors to those rankings. In this first segment, they look at farm size, and level of debt.
