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

Jul 08, 2022

By Lindy McMillen, Grain Originator:  Dighton Area

Your GCC Grain Team is getting ready to launch enrollment for our Alpine Pro wheat contract. This contract prices July 2023 (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 2023.
