Farms.com Risk Management has been conducting a U.S. Corn Belt Crop Tour for several years. This unique tour features Senior Commodity Risk Manager Moe Agostino, as he visits and assesses farm fields throughout the Midwest. Farms.com Risk Management’s goal is to be a leader in assisting farmers to help them anticipate where grain prices are headed to give them a selling advantage.
The Tour begins in late June, ends in early July, and includes on-farm assessments and farmer and industry interviews/reports within 12 U.S. states, including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Farms.com Risk Management invites sponsors to be featured throughout the tour.
The information collected throughout the tour will be presented at our final events. The first event will take place on July 7th at the Kinze Innovation Center in Williamsburg, Iowa which will include a factory tour, dinner, results and summary of the 2015 U.S. Corn Belt Crop Tour and live entertainment. The second event will be held on July 14th at the Penta Tillage Facility in Glencoe, Ontario. The Penta event will include a factory tour, dinner, product demonstrations and results and summary of the 2015 U.S. Corn Belt Crop Tour.
