Join former United States Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns and the alliantgroup team for a free webinar to discuss how a number of pro-business changes have qualified farmers, ranchers and other agribusinesses for powerful tax credits for their day-to-day activities.

There are hundreds of ways the entire agriculture sector—from dairy processors to equipment manufacturers—can benefit from this tax incentive.

A few qualifying activities include:

ag-blast-bullet1 Experimentation with new feeds or feeding techniques for livestock
ag-blast-bullet1 Hybridization or development of new strains of crops, plants, poultry or livestock
ag-blast-bullet1 Experimentation with new or different fertilizers
ag-blast-bullet1 Development or implementation of new ways to protect crops from disease

In recent years, there have been significant legislative and regulatory changes to the credit. If you have never claimed the credit, or even if you have claimed the credit in prior years, your company may be in line for significant savings due to these recent modifications.
