Just about every good we use in our daily lives costs more compared to a year or two ago. The price tag for gas, food, furniture and even clothing has made many of us start budgeting our incomes and stretch every dollar possible. In the agricultural sector, the costs of diesel fuel, fertilizer, pesticides and other supplies are also at an all-time high. For example, fertilizer is up over 200 percent compared to this time last year. This severe inflation of farming inputs has already impacted what crops farmers are planting and also how they will be managed. Just like consumers, farmers also need to stretch every dollar possible.
