What is It?

Ag Decision Maker is a decision-oriented agricultural business web site designed for farmers, lenders, farm managers, agriculture instructors, and others. Ag Decision Maker is written by economics and farm management specialists at Iowa State University and other Universities and institutions across the mid-west.

Newsletter Articles
A monthly Newsletter provides analysis and insight into many of the issues facing modern agriculture. All of the Newsletter Articles appearing in Ag Decision Maker since its inception in October of 1996 are available at this site.

Information Files
Over 160 Information Files provide information and procedures for analyzing and finding solutions to many of the decisions facing farmers and agribusinesses. Each Information File can be accessed as a pdf file for printing (icon shown at the right) or an html file for reading right on your computer screen. To enlarge the html version to fill the entire screen, use the icon shown at the left. To return to the original size use the browser "back" button at the top of the screen.

Decision Tools
Many of the Decision Files have Decision Tools (electronic spreadsheets) for on-line computation (icon shown at the left). You can enter your own figures into the spreadsheet to conduct an analysis for your individual situation and then save the analysis as a file on your computer.

Teaching Activities
Also, many of the Decision Files have Teaching Activities for use in the classroom (icon shown at the left). Students can complete the Teaching Activities from information provided in the Decision Files and save it as a word file or send the file to their instructor. Many of the Teaching Activities have Answer Keys at a secure location on this web site. Contact Ann Holste to access the Answer Keys.
