Conterra Understands Agriculture in the Delta Region

Cotton, corn, soybeans, and rice are the dominant commodities grown in the Delta. The big farmers are getting bigger and the little farmer is falling behind. It’s a classic consolidation trend that you would see in other industries and a lot of this is driven by technology and economies of scale.

Labor, input prices, and weather are the biggest challenges facing farmers in the delta area today.

Land prices have dramatically increased over the last few years driven by low interest rates, low supply/high demand, institutional buyers, and inflation hedges. Contact Conterra today to see how we can help manage your financial situation with a variety of lending solutions that can meet the needs of today’s modern farm operation.
