The business of selling precision services --- and only services – to growers is becoming a reality.  One reason is that the complexity of technology and vast number of choices continue to increase.  These choices allow for agronomists and retailers to focus and specialize in an area such as soil fertility, remote sensing, or data analysis.  Come and listen to one agronomist share his experiences over the past three years on the journey from corporate agronomy into the role of an independent advisor selling only precision services to growers.
