FoA 255: [Tech-Enabled Advisor Series] Matt Larson, Agronomy Sales Manager at CHS

Future of Agriculture

Today’s episode is brought to you by FieldAgent by Sentera. One key piece of the agtech conversation that often gets overlooked is the most likely customer for a lot of digital tools may not actually be a farmer. For many of them, an advisor to that farmer may be the one actually performing that task, and may have the biggest vested interest in adopting cutting-edge technologies.  We’re calling this little mini-series “The Tech-Enabled Advisor.” We will profile some of the farmers’ advisers: agronomists, ag retailers, consultants, and other local professionals that farmers rely on for guidance, advice, and implementation. To help me identify the right tech-savvy advisors for these episodes, and to make sure we hear from different types of guests, I’ve asked various agtech companies to partner with me on these episodes.  The first one to say yes, was the sponsor of today’s episode: FieldAgent by Sentera. FieldAgent enables agronomic advisors to make more timely decisions by taking data they’re already using on a daily basis – such as satellite, weather, equipment, soil, and field operations and integrate it with drone data and their machine learning capabilities. In this episode, we are joined by Matt Larson, Agronomy Sales Manager for CHS in Holdredge, Nebraska. CHS is a leading global agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States. Matt and his team of 6 utilize technology like FieldAgent alongside Climate FieldView and CHS’s Agellum platform to service their farmer customers. “The biggest thing we need to do to separate ourselves is bring new ideas. Everybody has a fertilizer price. Everybody sells a seed of some kind or a chemical of some kind. The big thing that we need to do is separate ourselves with technology, being a big one, service, information to growers, and just being able to offer those different ideas that maybe somebody else hasn't quite caught on to yet.” - Matt Larson Matt has seen the business model of agronomists and agronomy sales evolve over the last 12 years whether it's via communication methods, producer expectations or relationships with the farmers. He has found that farmers want to see more verified data before adopting new technology and a lot of that can now be shared via the new digital platforms.   “Growers have all this data. They have the planting data, they have the seeding data, harvest data, their spraying, all that stuff. What do they do with it? And that's where I think it's our job to dig through the weeds and find out what's the real, what's the fake for them, what makes a difference and then bring that to them.” - Matt Larson  Please participate in our listener survey to help us focus the direction of the show:  https://airtable.com/shrCB33GWIUCIxVRU This Week on The Future of Agriculture Podcast: Matt Larson, Agronomy Sales Manager for CHS in Holdredge, Nebraska Discover how Matt incorporates new technologies like FieldAgent, Climate FieldView and CHS’s Agellum platform for his customers Listen to a discussion about what data matters to producers and what methods do they prefer to use to access it Join the FOA Community!

#83 - It's A Funeral Boat w/ Matt Larson

Fck This Place: The Jobs Podcast

Comedian Matt Larson (Burb Patrol) has really never had one job. It's more like he has a trophy case of jobs, and he's always ready to add one more to his collection. Matt has done office assistant for possibly the oldest man alive, not enough smiling at the apple store, freelance writing, professional audience work, and oh yeah, he worked on a funeral boat for two days. It's a twisty ride, but Matt has found his way into video editing somehow, and he's hoping that can stick for a while.

Conversation with Pastor Matt Larson


Pastor Matt Larson joins our host Alex Umole to discuss biblical perspectives in social justice. Matt pastors in South Florida in a Church of over 27 nationalities. With an ever-changing culture in South Florida, he acknowledges the need for social justice and the Pentecostal church's role. He addresses the idea that the local church cannot avoid ministry to the poor and in social justice because the gospel is defined in Jesus. Preach Freedom is a conversation starter featuring ordinary people such as laity, pastors, and professionals in secular workplaces having honest and unfiltered conversations about social justice and the church's role. The ideas and perspectives discussed are then contextualized to South Florida to seek ways local Pentecostal churches can embrace new strategies in social justice to impact the lives of people in society beyond the four walls of the church.

The Happy Child with Matt Larson | POF65

Parenting Our Future

We all want the best for our kids and in this day and age, we are bombarded with mixed messages, advice and studies that confuse us and complicate parenting.  What if you knew that parenting only came down to 2 issues, along with genetics, that impact long term wellbeing for your child?  These two “things” also impact the relationship with your kids AND your own wellbeing?  Through his studies with The Human Improvement Project, my guest, Matt Larson, explains what modern studies are revealing (through studying the way the brain responds while in an FMRI machine).  These studies are showing us whic parenting strategies work and don’t work.  We can see that if your child has a meltdown, that when we minimize their feelings it doesn't lead to calming, but, VALIDATING them DOES!  If you’re able to name the underlying emotions and why your child is feeling them, this is what helps your child calm and recover, and helps deepen your bond with your child.  In this episode, we talk about how important it is for our children to have deep bonds with their parents (just one or both).  Matt and his colleagues have found the most critical interactions we have with our kids is when they're upset. It's how we react to their upset that builds up or breaks down those bonds.  Listen in as we talk about the little things you can do to ensure the wellbeing of you and your children!  About Matt Larson Matt is a parenting/relationships researcher, technology entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. He spends most of his time on a non-profit initiative called the Human Improvement Project which distributes completely free, ad free, parenting and relationship apps (In Love While Parenting, The Happy Child) that are installed by over 100,000 parents each month in over 165 countries (15 languages). Previously, he was the executive chairman of TapInfluence a venture-backed Social Media company. Prior to TapInfluence, he was the Founder and CEO of Confio Software. Confio was the fastest growing company in the database tools market. It was acquired in 2013 by Solarwinds (NYSE: SWI) for $103M. He also founded a financial firm whose partners included a former U.S. Senate Majority Leader and a former U.S. House Majority Leader. Previously, Mr. Larson helped found an oil and gas technology company. In the span of a year, the company grew from four employees to over two hundred employees while raising over $110 million in venture capital. In 2012, Mr. Larson was named an Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist. Mr. Larson holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Colorado where he graduated 1st in his class. He is a member of the Mensa Society. Mr. and Mrs. Larson operate a family foundation dedicated to reducing child exploitation. They have lobbied successfully for hundreds of millions in additional federal spending dedicated to this cause. www.humanimprovementproject.org The Happy Child App is available in the App store and Google Play Store: https://hipapp.page.link/XktS From the podcast: To download The Happy Child  App, Visit the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.   As discussed in the episode, keep these key things in mind: Notice When your Child Upset. If your child feels unnoticed or invisible, it will diminish their wellbeing. Validate your Child's Emotions: Name their feelings and why they are having them – even if you don’t agree! Create Deep Bonds: using physical touch, affection, emotional validation and celebrating who they innately are. Emotional Safe Haven: Make your home a safe place to be at all times.  Let your kids know that they can come to you at any time they need help, made a mistake, are in trouble or struggling.  It’s so important that they know they won’t be judged or criticized (or punished!) but that you are there to help support them and help to work it out.   Thanks for listening! It means so much to me that you listened to my podcast! If you would like to purchase my book or other parenting resources, visit me at www.yellingcurebook.com With this podcast, my intention is to build a community of parents that can have open and honest conversations about parenting without judgement or criticism.  We have too much of that!  I honor each parent and their path towards becoming the best parent they can be.  My hope is to inspire more parents to consider the practice of Peaceful Parenting.
