is intended to assist farmers, agribusiness professionals, Extension filed staff, and others with interest

in agriculture and agribusiness. Information presented here is based on the most recent information and

research available. However, the rapidly changing economic and policy conditions for agriculture limit

the usefulness and life span of conclusions and recommendations cited here. Decision makers should

keep these facts in mind. Feel free to use the information included in this publication for other uses,
