This Season, Plan Ahead!
Apr 09, 2022
This quote has become our montra for the 2022 and 2023 growing seasons, and we strongly encourage you to make it yours too! Due to supply chain disruptions, price increases and shortages, our ability to quickly source parts, equipment, tires, etc. has been severely impacted. Gone are the days when we had unlimited access to these items and one week delivery dates. At the Ag Service Center, we’ve adapted our daily operations to include a stronger emphasis on planning and preparing for the future needs of our patrons. Yet, like any true partnership, our efforts will only go so far. Your involvement is key. In order to help you be successful for the 2022 growing season, we ask that you also plan ahead and think about your future needs. By doing so, we are able to work through the significant delays, source what you need and meet your time expectations.
