On this episode of the GROW Podcast, host John King explores a paradigm shift shared by Van Wall Equipment owner, Don Van Houweling. Rather than looking at equipment needs from planting to harvest, Van Houweling shares that his team is transforming this view to focus tillage to tillage, aiming for a fully engaged customer. As the leading John Deere dealer in Iowa, Van Wall Equipment (https://vanwall.com) is leveraging the importance of data and how equipment can ease data gathering for farmers. With 67% of acres in Iowa planted with John Deere equipment, according to Van Houweling, they have a huge opportunity to harness farmer data efficiently. Van Houweling shares his insights on the equipment landscape now and for the future. We encourage you to check out the Van Wall location nearest you. (https://vanwall.com/locations/)
