Richardson Pioneer offers a variety of contracting tools and options to help our customers determine the right contract and timing to market their grain.

Using these contracting tools, we can help you:

Manage grain storage by scheduling deliveries to a terminal for a specified period. This helps manage space issues and quality risk.
Manage return on investment by guaranteeing a minimum price for some or all of your crop.
Capitalize on market rallies and benefit from future price increases.
Manage your cash flow by ensuring you have it when you need it while allowing you to remain in the market to capture potential upside.
Avoid production shortfall risks associated with other cash grain delivery contracts.

Market Manager™

The Market Manager™ is a flexible tool that commits Richardson Pioneer to buy a predetermined amount of a commodity at a specific price and time from the grower. Only the grower can cancel this contract prior to execution. If the contract is not exercised because the price is not achieved during the contracting period, the contract simply expires.

Basis Selector™

The Basis Selector™ allows growers to take advantage of a potential upside to the futures market while locking in a basis price. Growers can choose to roll a basis contract over to the next futures month.

Price Selector™

The Price Selector™ allows growers to take advantage of a premium being offered in the market for future delivery of a commodity.

Price Optimizer™

The Price Optimizer™ allows growers to deliver at a guaranteed minimum price, while remaining in the market to benefit from potential future price increases. Components include minimum price, delivery period, length of the contract, volume and quality.
