Farming isn't an occupation people choose for the large margins and simplicity. It's a complex feat to turn a profit in times when working capital is at its lowest level in ten years and commodity prices are struggling.

Farmers and service technicians alike know the frustration of trying to resolve issues after regular working hours. Especially if the issue can't wait until daylight. Sometimes it's a broken down planter in the middle of a cultivated field with rain predicted to fall in the next couple hours. A detrimental scenario for any farmer. With innovative technologies like AgriSync, more and more dealerships are offering around the clock solutions for their farmer customers.
"We want to continue to expand at a rate that keeps us efficient. Efficiency is the most important thing to us. We're doing a lot of work with not a lot of people, so uptime is extremely important for us," says Joe Bloome III, President of Hi-Tech Farms, in Christian County, Illinois.
Those of us in and around production agriculture routinely see and hear about the role advisors play in helping farm operators feed the world. It’s so routine we don’t usually try to quantify the scope or degree of the advisor impact. We noticed an interesting summary from Iowa State University that put some specific numbers to it, and we thought we’d pass along the numbers here.
The agriculture industry doesn’t have a rule book or a glossary of terms that we all function by so we thought that we would clear up some terminology that we use at AgriSync on a daily basis.
Farmers are the bread and butter of agriculture and we want to ensure your time is well spent getting the most of your large investment in technology, equipment, and other ag inputs. There’s no time for downtime and AgriSync is here to be your on-farm, go-to communication tool when things break on the farm. Our goal is for you to have one touch access to your trusted advisors through a simple app to connect with them when you need help. Now your advisor can see what you see simply through your smartphone.
There’s something highly attractive about a fresh start, a clean slate, and an open door to successes and achievable dreams. When there’s passion, drive, motivation to solve a problem, and a group of like-minded folks; anything is possible.
