As has been discussed in past episodes of this podcast series, the intersection between agronomy and farm equipment is becoming more seamless. Dealers are increasingly bridging the gap between the two for a one-stop solution for customers.
But there are multiple pathways dealers can take to delivering agronomic services and adding an in-house agronomist is one option that appears to gaining momentum.
Preliminary analysis of our 2017 Precision Farming Dealer Benchmark Study data shows that more than 40% of respondents utilize an in-house agronomist to deliver data management services. This is more than double the percentage from a year ago.
In today’s Precision Farming Dealer podcast, brought to you by Farmers Edge, we share the experiences of 2 dealerships that have hired in-house agronomists and how those additions have accelerated the growth of their precision farming departments.
