"Lenders are a little more skittish," says Dr. Anthony Yeboah, professor and chair of North Carolina A&T State University's department of agribusiness, applied economics and agriscience education.
As of this writing, hourly wages for H2A workers have not been finalized, and it remains to be seen if the proposed decrease from $8.85 to $7.25 will be approved. (An increase to $9.35 also is possible.) Yeboah suggests that Americans faced with escalating unemployment rates may be more willing to take farm jobs, an outcome that Augostini views as unlikely. Yeboah says growers shouldn't hesitate to tap reputable agricultural credit sources, but doesn't advise seeking other types of loans, and he urges producers to continue promoting the health benefits of fruits, nuts and vegetables.

North Carolina A&T State University Anthony Yeboah is a Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Agribusiness, Applied Economics and Agriscience Education at North Carolina A&T State University. He received his Ph.D. from Iowa State University. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, he teaches graduate level courses in microeconomics, statistics and econometrics and is also actively engaged in research domestically and at the international level. His research interest focuses on finding ways to improve the economic viability of small-holdings in North Carolina. His research in recent years identified enterprise diversification, love-of-farming, and risk management strategies as the driving forces behind success and survival of small-scale farms in North Carolina. Specifically, the adoption of value-added processing, niche marketing and enterprises that generate income can significantly impact economic viability of small farms. Diversifying farm operations creates a greater opportunity for year-round income and can contribute to the success of the farm business. He has also analyzed the economic feasibility of growing canola on marginal lands as a source of biofuel to provide additional income to small farmers without competing with corn production. His ongoing research is a study of small farm agritourism as a tool for community development in North Carolina.
