    We’re heading into a lean period in crop profitability. After several years of strong returns, margins in 2015 will be tight. Many crop farms could lose money if corn and soybean prices don’t rebound.

    How will you adjust your operation for lower commodity prices? One of your best resources is a professional crop consultant.

    Certified crop advisers, or CCAs, offer informed and independent advice on the decisions that affect profitability, including fertility, variety selection, seeding rates, crop protection, integrated pest management, and precision farming.
