Farm Management

Planning & Budgeting 

Helping Manage Your Farming Operation

Effective farm management requires meticulous attention to detail. From planning and budgeting to benchmarking, E4 ag consulting services help growers manage the details that keep things running smooth and growing strong year after year.

On top of producing healthy crops, farming requires growers to manage a staff, coordinate with farm managers, work with lenders, and more. Our Planning and Budgeting service helps you make smart, informed business decisions for your operation. An E4 representative will consider historical, current, and project costs, crop planning goals, and budgets to deliver an optimized plan tailored to your operation.

Benchmarking

Ag Industry Comparison and Analysis

Our Benchmarking service allows you to see how your operation stacks up against others of a similar size and type. With access to a large data pool of private growing data (identities kept confidential), we can bring fact-based insights that can improve your farming or management practices and identify growth opportunities.

Benchmarked data includes:

  • Planned vs. actual field outputs (costs, quantities, etc.)
  • Equipment needs and costs
  • Product performance and costs
  • Land and rent (cost, value)
  • Hybrid/variety trends and performance
  • Revenue
