Special thanks to Armor Seed CEO Kelly Phipps for his four-part series on operations. Today we'll share Part I: Reconciling Your Inventory.
For those who have wheat, the start of January means we have to be paying attention to our crop now. As you may know, there are some basic guidelines to follow to keep things rolling through the next couple of months.
Planting may have started slowly this year thanks to rainy weather. And we had some early season growing problems due to cool, wet ground. But, as it usually does, the weather warmed up, the crops began to grow, and the rains came and made for a mild summer.
Special thanks to Jenna Martin for headlining our “Girl Starts Strong” series this year. It has been a real pleasure to follow this inspiring young farmer as she embarked on her first year in her own field. She learned a lot, and we did too. Jenna’s ambition assures us all that the future of agriculture is in good hands. We asked Jenna to offer some closing thoughts on the 2014 growing season. Here she is in her own words.
