Pre-Harvest Risk Management for Kentucky Grain Farms

Corn, soybean, and wheat pre-harvest price risk management strategies are evaluated using data from 2001 to 2017 crop years. A comparison of seasonality of the December corn, November soybeans, and July wheat futures contracts is used to determine potential months to implement hedges. The value of hedges is compared to use of cash forward contracts or cash sales at harvest.
