The director of the Arthur Capper Cooperative Center at K-State, Brian Briggeman, digs into a new analysis his center just finished, which looked at the soaring fertilizer price situation and how it's affecting the financial state of farm cooperatives. He talks about the data he used from the last time fertilizer prices spiked, and then plummeted, in the late 2000s as a benchmark for assessing the current financial vulnerability of various-sized cooperatives.
