Technology has increased relevance during pandemic.

No one plans or welcomes a pandemic, but Rob Saik says in this unexpected time of isolation and social distancing, a new service he launched in 2019 can help farmers connect with a diverse network of agricultural expertise either online or by phone, at a time when face-to-face personal contact is being discouraged.

Saik, well known in the agriculture industry as founder of the long-operating Agri-Trend crop consulting service, is now at the helm as CEO of a new service he founded last year — AGvisorPro. Co-piloting the venture is co-founder and general manager, Patrick Walther.
Saik and Walther didn’t have a health pandemic in mind when they developed the service, “but it is an example of how technology can help us to connect with people under adverse circumstances,” says Saik.
