Nutrien Ag Solutions' Champaign Innovation Farm hosts local student's award-winning FFA project
In spring 2023, Thaddeus Bates met with Rich McCabe, the FFA Advisor at Unity High School, to present information about the Nutrien Ag Solutions Innovation Farm in Champaign, Illinois. During that time, he offered a 27-acre block for the FFA students to use for projects during the 2023 growing season. One student, Avery Watson, a junior in high school, jumped at the chance to use the land for her project comparing a high technology planter to a basic planter.
Just like tending to your personal finances, nurturing your farm's financial well-being is essential. Seize the opportunity at the start of the new year to reassess your financial plan and establish income goals for the upcoming year. Consider what steps you can take to achieve those goals and promote financial stability. In the face of potential challenges such as unpredictable weather or market fluctuations, focus on proactive strategies that will help you navigate and overcome these obstacles. By adopting a positive mindset and embracing effective financial planning, you can position your farm for success in 2024 and beyond.
