We close the first season of the Agroforestry Podcast with an episode intended to steer your budding tree crop ideas into grounded reality. Larry Godsey, Associate Professor of Agribusiness at Missouri Valley College and former agroforestry economist with the Center for Agroforestry, shares his insightful perspective about economics in the context of long-term harvests and ecosystem services associated with perennial farming. And while economics isn’t all about finances, it’s an important part of the equation; Paul Dietmann, Senior Lending Officer of Mission Finances at Compeer Financial and co-author of Fearless Farm Finances, offers an insider perspective on financing for beginning farmers interested in planting trees.
