Farmer’s Business Network (FBN) released today its “The Voice of the Farmer”, a special research report on the state of American agriculture and the challenges facing farmers, according to a post over on sister site CropLife.com.
The Voice of the Farmer (Download Full 72 Page Report) examines the state of modern day farming through a combination of candid interviews with farmers and analysis of millions of acres of real farm yield and thousands of farmer seed and chemical invoices and price records.
What issues are weighing on the minds of farmers in 2017? What does the data say about the impact of ag industry mergers and farm consolidation on farm profits?
“Independent family farms are the core of our food system, but are too often left out of the most important discussions affecting their livelihoods.” Said FBN network Co-Founder & VP of Product, Charles Baron. “We created The Voice of the Farmer to examine the most pressing issues facing farmers and what they mean for their farm incomes and the future of their industry.”
