Technology training — both internal and external — can hold as much earning potential as it can headaches. But employee and customer training are essential investments for precision growth during the next 5 years, with more than 98% of dealers citing these areas as priorities in the 2017 Precision Farming Dealer Benchmark Study.
Technical competency can be improved through annual training requirements, but dealers must develop the “soft skills” of their precision staff in connecting with customers to provide practical, reputable education.
In today’s Precision Farming Dealer podcast brought to you by Farmers Edge, we listen in on a conversation Lessiter Media President Mike Lessiter had with Cody Searle, Chris Finley and Layne Richins, three precision farming managers who'll discuss the strides and setbacks of developing constructive precision training platforms, both internally and externally.
