He discusses the many problems encountered by farmers when it comes to investments and how their services provide the answers to those issues. He also shares why his company stands out among the competition, their goals for 2018, and his thoughts on the future of AgTech.

 

“Producing a crop is a combination of hundreds if not thousands of micro variables.”– Nick Horob
