The Decisions Made by Farm Managers
Farm managers typically work for farmland owners who are not actively involved in farming operations. For example, most farm managers are involved in farm income tax paperwork; fertilizer, seed, and chemical recommendations; and conservation practice decisions. I am researching the processes farm managers go through to make these decisions for individual farms. I am specifically interested in the process that goes into deciding what farms to rent to what tenants, how much to rent it out for, and the different terms of contracts (i.e., upkeep practices for each farm). To complete my research, I will be job shadowing multiple accredited farm managers through the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ISPFMRA).
