A Grain Contract That Releases You From Verified Crop Failure? We've Got That!

Jul 19, 2021

Introducing the Alpine Pro winter wheat contract. This contract prices July 2022 (new crop) wheat futures through a combination of committee pricing and a proprietary rules-based algorithm. Especially unique to this contract is our provision that allows a farmer to be released from the contract in cases of verified crop failure like drought, freeze or hail. This managed contract is a great tool to add diversification to your grain marketing portfolio. Reach out to your grain originator to learn more and to see if this contract could be a good fit for your operation’s needs. Sign up will end in mid-August, with the pricing window running through May 2022.
