Early in his career, Duane Fierstine heard something that still sticks with him today: “When you open a bag of seed, that seed already has its yield potential.” Since then he has focused on trying to help growers eliminate factors that reduce those yields, both in his time with Hagie Manufacturing and now as an account manager with RDO Equipment Co.
With John Deere’s recent acquisition of majority ownership of Hagie, host Tony Kramer invited Duane to the podcast to share the Hagie story, discuss agronomic benefits of the sprayers, and get his prediction of what the future might hold from the collaboration of these powerhouse companies.
