In order to do so, you must have systems to be able to do this. Using a series techniques and specific spread sheets, Curtis will show you how it all comes together so that you can apply it to your farming season immediately as well as use it to improve systems and crops that are working and eliminate the ones that aren’t. The numbers don’t lie. This kind of information can open a whole new world of possibilities to you on your farm.
