While in-person meetings provide valuable face-to-face contact, the chaotic schedules of precision managers don’t always allow for coordinated sessions.

In 2018, a group of John Deere precision farming managers, organized by Phil Moskal from Mid-State Equipment, began communicating via text message to assist each other with troubleshooting in-field problems or trading insight on new products or services.

We assembled a geographically diverse group of 8 different precision farming managers to discuss their involvement and interaction in a virtual peer group to exchange ideas, problem-solve and provide a source of professional therapy.
