Future of Agriculture – Building Apps for Agriculture with Peter Schott of Myriad Mobile


Peter Schott grew up in a family with technologically inclined parents who used computers on their farm even from way back in 1984. Because of this, Peter’s curiosity on the possibilities that technology can bring in solving agricultural problems grew. As a result, Peter and another guy from his college dorm decided to work together on offering solutions through mobile apps by establishing their own company called Myriad Mobile.

Today, Peter talks about the significant role that mobile apps play in the future of agriculture and the solution of current agricultural problems. He shares some excellent insights from two different perspectives – one from that of a farmer’s and the other of an entrepreneur. He also explains the significance of knowing your audience, your vision, and the problem you want to solve when thinking of a good app to pursue.

 

“I think the industry is best served if people spend more time listening to their customers and working alongside them rather than telling them what they need.”  – Peter Schott

Future of Agriculture – Why You Should Teach Agriculture – Part Two with Dr. Daniel Foster


Today’s episode is a continuation of a two-part series on why you should teach agriculture. In the previous episode, Dr. Daniel Foster, an educator at Pennsylvania State University, shared his insights about agriculture and agricultural education on a national scale. Dr. Foster not only makes a difference in the lives of young people, but also trains teachers who want to make a difference in the agricultural education outside the country.

Dr. Foster joins me today as he talks about agriculture and agricultural education on an international scale. He shares how he tried to help establish agricultural education in Guatemala and the inspiring story when Dr. Foster and his team of agricultural instructors had an intercultural agriculture trip to Korea.

 

“It’s okay to be scared but saddle up anyway because there’s a young person in this world, there’s a young person in America that needs you.”  – Dr. Daniel Foster

 

 

This Week on The Future of Agriculture Podcast:

  • Possible reasons why there is a decrease in agriculture instructors in the U.S.
  • How agricultural businesses can offer assistance and support on ag programs
  • Why there are high rates of out-of-school and disengaged students aged 16 to 24 in Guatemala
  • Foster’s proposal regarding the development of Guatemala’s agricultural education
  • Why each agricultural teacher is required to do an individualized professional development plan
  • How Dr. Foster expands the global mindset of students
  • Other significant student learnings Dr. Foster hopes his students will discover
  • Challenges prospective agriculture educators face and how Dr. Foster can help instructors

Questions Ag Businesses Should Ask Ag Programs:

  2. What do you have going on?
  3. Where do you need assistance and help?
  4. How can we help?
