- When used consistently and strategically, ProPricing can help you see the kind of return most farmers find difficult to achieve on their own.
OTHER AGSTATE RISK MANAGEMENT TOOLS

- No-Basis-Established (NBE) Contract — Secure a futures prices and delivery period without specifying the basis level.
- Daily Floor Plus™ —Establish your futures reference price by marketing an equal number of bushels daily during a specified period.
- Focal Point™ — When you establish an initial price on a selected futures month and then re-price at a later date, you stay in the market.
