In this episode of On the Record, Stifel's quarterly dealer survey reveals that while OEM lead times have improved slightly, the majority of dealers still say they are longer than last year. In the Technology Corner we look at AEM's recent white paper that outlines 13 trends that could influence how food is produced — many of which are tied to precision ag technologies. Also in this episode: A closer look at Titan Machinery's acquisition of Heartland Ag Systems, how farmers view shortlines compared to the majors, and a look at the 6-month unit sales report for 100+ horsepower and 4WD tractors.
