In an effort to help you better understand large commercial producers' businesses and fundamental attitudes that underlie their buying behavior, Purdue University's Center for Food and Agricultural Business has developed Serving Producers in Volatile Times, a report describing the various themes found after analyzing data from the 2008 Large Commercial Producer Survey.



You can download a preview of the report or purchase the full, 76-page version for $35 at Purdue University's Center for Food and Agricultural Business Web site.



At the site, you can also purchase PowerPoint slide sets of the data center researchers collected and analyzed. There are data sets available for the following segments: animal health, capital, crop protection, financial and seed.
