Average Seasonal Price Contract

With ALCIVIA’s Average Seasonal Price Contract, producers can take advantage of what historically has been a good time to lock in new crop prices. The contract works by setting an average futures price during a seasonal pricing window. These contracts are used to even out the ups and downs of a volatile market.

  • Helps diversify your marketing plan.
  • Takes the emotion and hassle out of your marketing decision by automatically executing for you.
  • Receive an average price in a window when historical seasonal values are typically at the highest.

Our approach to managing your risk

Today’s commodity markets present unique challenges. Added volatility and increased costs have created more risk for the producer, as well as more opportunity. That’s why our Grain Marketing Specialist Team is dedicated to finding opportunities to maximize your bottom line.

Price risk management for grain will help you protect your operation’s profits by taking advantage of those opportunities. It will also help you avoid the peaks and valleys of price prediction. True opportunity management in grain allows for marketing confidence in an uncertain environment.

Every year, farmers take on many challenges—crop yield, a volatile commodities market, and personal financial risks. At the top of every farmer’s mind is the price of their crop and the risk of the market price declining below the point of profitability. You must strike a balance between achieving a suitable profit level and preserving marketing opportunities.
