Farm Inspection Visits
Throughout the year we will inspect your farm and meet with the farm operator to ensure that the operation of your farm is moving along as planned. We will send you periodic reports to advise you of this progress including the following:
Planning Reports – During the first several months of a crop year we will meet several times with the farm operator to discuss and finalize plans for the upcoming crop year. At that time we will also review any improvement plans, crop marketing, and other pending projects. A complete report and yearly budget will then be sent to you for review and approval.
Planting Progress Reports – This report will verify crop acreage and crop growing conditions to date.
Crop Condition Reports – Throughout the growing season you will receive regular updates of crop conditions and current commodity markets.
Project Reports – As needed, you will be provided updates as to the progress of special projects and other matters that may relate to your farm. We will also update you as to any other issues that may affect your farm, such as changes in government policy.
Harvest Reports – Upon the completion of harvest, we will send a complete breakdown of the yield of each crop.
