A buddy seat is the little seat in tractors and combines that allows a second person to ride in the cab. This educational series is an opportunity to share knowledge and information, the same way it’s been passed down through conversations with someone riding in the buddy seat.

Throughout the year, Bushel will bring opportunities for agribusiness professionals to talk about challenges and opportunities as well as ask questions and network with their peers from around the country.

“We want to provide a space for our customers to ask one another ‘How do you do that?’ and ‘Here is what we learned,’” Camille Grade, chief market officer, said.

“At Bushel, our team and our customers have shared fond memories of riding buddy seat in the tractor or combine. It was where a lot of the informal knowledge of farming was passed down and where a lot of fun was had. We want to join alongside our customers as they navigate challenges and provide a space for industry voices to collaborate, and have fun.”
