Summer Forage Risk Management

Risk management economist Jenny Ifft and forage agronomist John Holman of K-State team up to talk about summer annual forage production and managing the risk associated with raising those forage crops: they discuss the agronomic factors at work in planting and growing forage this year, and which of those most greatly impact yield risk and go over the basics of the USDA'S Annual Forage Insurance program and how producers can use that coverage to mitigate that risk.

A Growth in Non-Traditional Agricultural Financing Sources

Three features this week on non-traditional agricultural financing, and its rising prominence in the agricultural lending field.

1) K-State risk management specialist Jenny Ifft and Purdue University agricultural economist Brady Brewer talk about the various sources of non-traditional financing and the degree to which they're claiming a greater share of the agriculture credit market.

2) Based on a series of studies recently conducted by a team of agricultural economists from several leading land-grant universities, K-State risk management specialist Jenny Ifft is joined by agricultural economists Brady Brewer of Purdue and Brian Briggeman of K-State for a look at the likely impact of current economic inflation and rising interest rates on the supply and demand for non-traditional farm loans.

3) The final segment of this week's series on the growth in non-traditional agricultural financing, based on a new report put together by a team of land-grant university agricultural economists:  this time, K-State's Jenny Ifft is joined by Bruce Ahrendsen of the University of Arkansas, as he outlines his study of how non-traditional finance relates to USDA farm loan defaults...and Will Secor of the University of Georgia shares his research on where non-traditional creditors land in the pecking order when it comes to debt repayments in Chapter 12 farm bankruptcy cases.
