CHS has announced open enrollment for corn and soybean marketing contracts through CHS Pro Advantage contracts now through December 19, 2018.
The CHS Pro Advantage contract allows growers to diversify their marketing while taking the emotion out of selling. It’s a way for growers to take advantage of professional pricing for a portion of their crops using trading experts with a track record of success based on deep market intelligence, especially during times of volatile or low-priced commodity markets. Growers pledge a specific quantity of bushels for a grower-defined delivery destination. Commodity professionals with CHS Hedging/Russell Consulting Group will price these bushels over a specific period of time.
Growers can enroll 2019 and 2020 bushels. Bushels in the one-year December 2019 contract will be priced between Dec. 21, 2018, and Sept. 20, 2019. Bushels in the two-year December 2020 contract program will be priced between December 21, 2018, and Sept. 18, 2020.
If you’re interested in knowing more, contact your local CHS grain team for more information or visit the CHS Pro Advantage website.

Crops demand nutrition throughout the entire growing period, but most of them can’t utilize those nutrients effectively during early development. A shortage of nutrients can lead to significant yield loss and stunted plant development.
How effectively those nutrients are managed in the spring can affect how the crops look in the fall. Weather and other pest and weed influences can also impact crop growth and development, but good nutrient management is essential as crops reach the final stages of growth. As crops move through the grain fill period in the fall, growers need to keep an eye out for nutrient deficiency symptoms. (more…)
Patronage and equity are key benefits for owners of CHS and the cooperative system. CHS is committed to distributing patronage and redeeming equity for its owners while maintaining a strong balance sheet so it can continue to provide owners with the goods, services and supply chain capabilities required for long-term success.
Following the close of fiscal 2018, the CHS Board of Directors has announced the following patronage and equity distribution decisions:
Trade is a critically important part of business for CHS and for our farmer-owners, yet U.S. trade policy remains uncertain and dynamic. Tariffs being applied to imports from China and other important international markets – and resulting retaliatory measures from our trading partners – could have an impact across the entire CHS enterprise. This could offer significant challenges as our owners move toward harvest this fall. (more…)
