The fertilizer industry has traditionally operated on thin margins in a climate of intense local competition. The modern-day fertilizer industry combines those issues with volatility generated by seasonal demand and short timeframes for securing product. Luckily, there are tools available to manage the expected use, local competitiveness and risk associated with your inventory. These tools are available for everyone to use and that’s why INTL FCStone is offering the Fertilizer Risk Academy.
This single-day, pure education event will teach you how to utilize financial tools to manage your price risk and stand out amongst your competitors. Sessions will start with an introduction and foundation of the futures industry-building as we progress through market terminology, mechanics and strategy. Emphasis will be placed on Spreads, Basis, Futures, Options, and OTC markets. You’ll also get hands-on practice with an interactive workshop where you will apply the concepts that were presented in a real-life scenario.Learn More
