“I wanted to have more flexibility with my schedule and be able to sell a quality product to the farmers that I have been dealing with. Channel’s products and support team were the drivers for me to go to Channel instead of with any other seed companies.”

“The support has been great. Anywhere from agronomics, to business decisions, to logistics — It seems like there is always someone that's just a phone call away that really specializes in that area and will walk you through it.”
