Nearly $30B worth of wholesale plants are sold from tens of thousands of farms to hundreds of thousands of buyers each year. This fragmentation leads to a lot of problems. Farms and buyers communicate ineffectively forcing each side to guess demand, availability, and pricing. Consequently, as construction and real estate continue to boom across the country, the farms that supply contractors and retail stores are struggling to get by. Nationwide, $6B (10-20%) of crops end up bulldozed each year due to poor planning.
