Water Street Solutions' President and CEO Darren Frye spoke Monday at the American Bankers Association North American Agricultural Lenders Conference in Omaha.  He shared with bankers the $500 per acre gap that you can find this year between the most profitable farmers and the least profitable.  Frye says there are four levers that drive the differences in profitability:  production, insurance, marketing and financials.  He says those farmers that are paying attention to all of those and leveraging them together are finding the biggest success.
