On the AgPro Podcast with Ashley Davenport, voices from the industry asked, “From your perspective, what are the most misunderstood parts of the ag retail industry?”
A: I don’t think a lot of people realize agriculture and row crop farming has advanced like it has. There’s a lot of people who are really amazed I spend so much time on a computer looking at satellite pictures, elevation maps and stuff, and it’s all to grow corn. It’s definitely a big and growing industry, and the more of it we do, the more the public realizes how advanced we are and how much more environmentally sustainable it is. It’s a good business for anybody to get into but not necessarily fun when prices are this way. But you may as well do it when times are tough.
