Crop consulting is a challenging, exciting, and rewarding profession! It’s a profession of personal relationships; a consultant becomes an integral part of a farmer’s production team. It’s a profession that is field-based; dirt on our shoes is a requirement. It’s a profession based on science; but instinct and innovation guide us where science cannot.
The work of a crop consultant is to help a farmer raise the best crop possible within economic and environmental parameters. To a farmer, adoption of a concept like integrated pest management (IPM) requires commitment and often a willingness to change. That willingness only grows out of understanding.
The consultant, working one-on-one, can assist in that process. But it requires listening skill. It requires an open mind. It requires careful analysis of the situation. It requires much time.
