The idea is to get a call spread in place to use as a "courage call" so we can sell if/when we get a rally and feel the need to sell, we still have upside in place.
If the market goes higher, we can sell and use the call option for upside.
Calls can be rolled up to take some profit as well.

Selling a call in an area you think would be a great place to sell fall grain today
Selling the call has risk, make sure you understand that risk.
We can help mitigate the some of the risk by keeping the long short dated call in place
