The app also offers customizable features to create a market advisory plan that meets the unique crop and input needs of each producer, giving them clear marketing and purchasing recommendations to maximize profitability.
The app also includes interactive charts to help producers fully analyze the trends in the commodity market, DTN/The Progressive Farmer’s Cash Grain Bids to allow producers to search for the best cash bid prices near their operations, as well as DTN/The Progressive Farmer’s award-winning market news and commentary.
