Simple As Corn, Part 2

Business Lessons From A 12-Year-Old

Return to Episode: Simple As Corn, Part 2

Weston Hannan has the same problems and questions as other farmers: Where do I get my seed? How do I market my crop? What’s my economic position?

The main difference between Weston and other farmers is… he’s 12-years-old.

Most people aren’t thinking much beyond scraping together money for soda and video games at that age. Weston feels lucky to have the attention of an international ag powerhouse — Syngenta — right in his own backyard.
