Phil was originally brought to the USA from England by a large ag-retailer, to help expand a European style crop management program. The average wheat yield in the UK is around 120 bu/ac, but some producers across the Eastern Coast of England frequently achieve 150-200 bu/ac wheat yields on their farms, using intensive management systems. This program was first introduced to producers in Kentucky where it soon had a big impact on yields. In fact, it contributed to a doubling of the average state wheat yield across Kentucky over a 20 year period. Phil now works directly with producers and dealers across the Ohio Valley, plus the Central and Northern Plains, helping them increase yields and profits using similar style intensive crop management systems.
Phil conducts around 70 crop management seminars and equipment clinics each year. These events include Phil's practical experience and research, to help producers streamline their crop management strategies, increase crop yields and boost farm profits.
Phil and his wife Holly started Needham Ag Technologies, LLC. in February 2006 to help provide agronomically proven products and agronomy services to fill voids in the market. Today, their equipment division continues to grow, along with their customer base across the US, Canada and many other countries around the world.
