About Farm Risk
Managing Farm Risk is the result of a collaboration between Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture, the Indiana Soybean Alliance, and the Indiana Corn Marketing Council – the state soybean and corn checkoff programs, to help agricultural producers better understand and manage risk in a challenging agricultural environment. Together, we strive to provide farmers with tools, strategies, and resources to help ensure the long-term success of their operations.
