Answer: “In today’s difficult economic environment, we are seeing a trend to update existing facilities to meet the needs of retailers’ customers. Precision agriculture is having an impact on retailers’ needs. A plant built 10 years or 20 years ago may only have four bins for fertilizers. But in today’s world, there are more types of fertilizers and value-added crop nutrients in the marketplace. Having the capability of adding those products to your blends can really give a retail facility the advantage against competitors and promote better agronomy and sustainability.”
