What is a team?

  • It is a group of 1-5 people working together to achieve each season’s crop marketing plan’s profit goals.[1,2] 
  • If you do not want to work in a team, simply do not invite others to join. 
  • All team members can see the same information at all times. 
  • Experts on teams get portfolio manager status and their companies are named.
  • Portfolio managers (e.g. traders, lenders, millers and specialist service providers) can also create teams and invite their farming clients to join. The portfolio managers can then help manage the teams they created. 
  • To view the team rules go to Home >Team > Choose a team > Settings > Team rules.
