Another great year as far as yields go! Once again, our growers reported exceptional yields, and while the crop prices are never what we hope for, the extra yield definitely helps close the gap when it comes to profit per acre.
I would like to additionally thank all of our customers who took advantage of our Switch to Fall promotion. Because of the ongoing support of our growers, we were able to reward them with some exceptional pricing. Thanks to all of you for making it a huge success! We believe this will help take some of the pressure off [Federated] and our customers next spring. Growers will not have to wait to get out and hit the field. When the conditions are right, growers can plant.
We understand that you, our customers, have choices when it comes to purchasing inputs for your operation and we appreciate the trust you give us. We hope the services we provide are of great value; we strive to live up to our customers' expectations.
