If your company has taken steps to increase crop yields or has leveraged new technologies or made other improvements to its agricultural production processes, you likely qualify for a substantial tax-saving benefit.

To learn more about an opportunity that has provided considerable value for a wide-range of agribusinesses, please join us for a complimentary webinar as alliantgroup Executive Vice President Sonny Grover, alliantgroup Chairman of Agriculture and former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns and alliantgroup Agriculture Practice Lead Jeremy Troutman discuss a valuable government incentive that has already brought massive value back to your industry.

If your company performs any of the following, you are more than likely sitting on a substantial tax benefit:

  • Hybridization or development of new strains of crops, plants or livestock
  • Experimentation with new or different fertilizers
  • Development/implementation of new ways to protect crops from disease
  • Development of new irrigation systems
  • Evaluation and implementation of new techniques to increase yields
  • Development of new disease resistant crops or livestock
  • Improvements in harvesting equipment, techniques or cycle times
  • Experimentation with new feeds or feeding techniques for livestock
  • Development of new gene transfer technologies
  • Implementation of biosecurity practices: facility cleaning and disinfection
  • Many other activities related to the enhancement of agricultural production processes

For implementing new technologies or for practical improvements made to your agricultural production processes, you could be entitled to significant tax savings!
