Values

Farmers can make everyone is successful. Successful farmers, whether farming for profit or pleasure, excel at two things: (1) innovation and (2) building relationships. Both of these values are emphasized by Pee Dee Precision.

Innovation

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” – Steve Jobs

The reality faced by all of agriculture in the upcoming years includes:

  • rising population
  • finite supply of land
  • energy volatility
  • unpredictable interest rates
  • unpredictable weather
  • rising seed prices
  • traceability
  • sustainability

Potential innovations include:

  • improving efficiency
  • farming previously non-arable land like the desert
  • genetic lines better at resisting stresses such as drought, disease, and weeds
  • deriving knowledge from high throughput phenotyping, genotyping, and envirotyping
  • precision agriculture switching from passive data collection to decision making
  • better consumer-producer relationships

Building Relationships

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. – Henry Ford

Building relationships and exchanging ideas is the cornerstone of innovation.  Bringing innovation to life is the goal of Pee Dee Precision.
