yellowing locust tree

My locust tree leaves are yellowing and falling for the past 2weeks, which seems a little early to me. I think it is a black locust as it does not have thorns on the trunk or branches. I don't see any aphid webbing. The soil is clay and the base of the tree has vinca ground cover. I am just wondering if the tree is stressed and what I can do to help? thank you, Kelli Buresh

Custom Charges/Profit margin

My family has a 120 acre farm in central Iowa. Recently my father died and we are continuing a relationship with two brothers to plant, fertilize, harvest and haul crops to market. Last year was a corn crop; this year it was soy beans. For a number of years the brothers charged my father "custom charges" based on the Iowa State University Ag Dept for their farming services My question is two fold: a) Is there a profit margin built in to the charges? And b) Is it common practice to also pay a "management fee" in addition to the custom charges? My family wants to fairly compensate the two brothers who had a long term relation in working for my father. Thank you for your help.
