2012 Crop Advisors' Webinars

Best Management Practices (BMPs) are designed to save farmers money while maintaining optimal yields. But with real income on the line, farmers can be reluctant to try new practices. Income guarantees help ease the transition. The BMP Challenge combines guarantees, in-field comparison, and technical assistance to address risk and increase adoption of nutrient and tillage management practices.

These videos, presented by American Farmland Trust and Agflex Inc., provide information for crop advisors to prepare for 2012 crop season demonstrations. Our hope is to provide key details to prospective advisors in a convenient and efficient format and to subsequently boost enrollment.
