- selling grain before harvest or ex stock;
- basis contracts with or without a minimum price clause;
- selling futures contracts;
- selling the physical goods and simultaneously buying CALL options to create liquidity;
- buying PUT options in order to hedge a minimum price;

Different marketing strategies aim at different objectives and bear different residual risks. Therefore, the marketing strategy must be matched with the individual needs of the managers and/or owners. We have prepared more than a dozen well-tried marketing strategies for you in the SAATBAU Profit Manager.
By means of a What-if analysis starting out from the current situation you can determine in which way a planned grain sale, further storage or price hedging at futures exchanges would affect your planned profit margins and your loss risk.
Additionally, you can simulate all variants of crop insurance in order to take into account all contingencies. The operational result to be expected for your business in case of changes in price and/or quantity is at your fingertips. That way, you are always on top of your grain marketing.
