Exactly. How many threads are there on here about the minutiae details of crop production or equipment choices amounting to pennies per acre, and rarely a post on marketing. The low to high swings even within a boring flat marketing year can easily be 25%, when profit margins are in single digit percentages(or less). 25% change in gross income is massive. Compared to (for example) a fungicide application which is debated endlessly, and may have a 50% chance of a 5% yield increase( to pull numbers out of thin air). Which deserves more attention?
