The Hidden Impact of Top Soil Loss on Farmland Investment - December 2020

Tuesday, December 8, 2020; 3:00PM ET | 2:00PM CT | 1:00PM MT | 12:00 noon PT

Top soil, along with sunlight and water, is fundamental to agriculture. But, the United States Department of Agriculture estimates that we lose an average of 2.7 tons of top soil per acre to water erosion and 2.1 tons to wind erosion every year. How does this steady loss of valuable top soil change the way we look at farmland investments? Join us as our panelists discuss how we got here and how we deal with the issues facing us today.

The Impact of Water Access Issues on Farmland Investment - July 2020
