Volatile markets and challenging weather patterns are obvious risks agricultural producers have had to face in 2012. But they are just two of the many risks that producers must manage to successfully operate and grow their farms or ranches. Producers face numerous risks in several different areas, including production, price, financial, legal and human resource risk.
