The Average Seasonal Price (ASPTM) Advantage

As someone who keeps an eye on the market, it’s no secret that prices have been historically better at some times of the year than others. With the ASP™ Contract, you get to take what we’ve learned from the past and put it to work going forward, where seasonal pricing opportunities may exist.

    1. You enroll a portion of your production before the pricing period begins.
    2. When the pricing period concludes, your ASP Futures Reference Price is established. You decide when to set the basis.
    3. You deliver your grain and receive a final price. The final price is the ASP Futures Reference Price +/– Basis – Service Fee.
      Note: Specific dates fluctuate on an annual basis. For current dates, talk to your local merchandiser.
