At the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) conference this week in New Orleans, AGCO Corporation named Mose Middleton of Nutrien Ag Solutions as the “2019 Operator of the Year.” The award recognizes professional operators for their hard work and commitment to their customers and their local communities. This is the 14th year for the industry award sponsored by AGCO.

Middleton, a professional applicator for more than 30 years, applies on 33,000 acres per year. Advances in technology, from covered cabs to precision application, help Middleton ensure he is applying products exactly where they need to be. “I have children and grandchildren, so being responsible with products is important to me,” Middleton explains. “Looking to the future, I would want someone to be precise when they apply, so I make sure I am precise. Today’s equipment makes that much easier than in the past.”
