FMCLogo_RED-SOLID-webFMC Agricultural Solutions is a company serving the ag community with innovative solutions, applications and products.  They will be hosting a free, educational webinar for retailers on business preparations on August 19 from 8:30-10 a.m. (CST). You can register online or by calling 1-866-402-3750.

“For the past 10 years, FMC has offered our Star Retailers educational programs through the FMC Business Academy,” said Adam Prestegord, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America segment manager. “With a decade of proven success, we wanted to expand our offerings this year. The Insight Exchange Panel will allow retailers to connect directly with subject matter experts on timely topics that can be applied now and impact fall sales.”

With market volatility and many factors beyond control, it’s important to control what you can by learning new skills and developing behaviors that will maximize success when working with growers. Retailers are invited to join their peers and growers as David Widmar, agricultural economist and Purdue University Researcher, and Don Tyler, management coach and advisory to agribusiness corporations, as they share how to “sharpen your axe” with relevant business skills.

“During this 90-minute free webinar, retailers will have the opportunity to learn about the impact current market dynamics have on growers’ decision making and business decisions,” said Prestegord. “Additionally, retailers will have the opportunity to submit questions via a live chat and interact with panelists.”

After the web conference FMC Star Retails will also be able to talk with experts Widmar and Tyler through an online forum “Maximing Profitability” on
