Max Armstrong looks at the rise of e-commerce in agriculture

Max Armstrong shares insight into the growth of e-commerce in agriculture. Max points to a study by a consulting group that shows that the number of ag suppliers selling online doubled from 2016 to 2018. The farm consumer is changing how products from crop protection to equipment are purchased. This rising age of e-commerce raises concerns about the future of brick-and-mortar suppliers.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
