Topic: What PMPs and LCOs Should Know about the Chemical Supply Chain
Guests: Syngenta's Marshall Gaster, head of marketing for professional pest management, and Dave Ravel, head of sales for turf, ornamental & professional pest management
In this episode we discuss:
The rising cost of inputs in the pest and lawn industries, being driven up by raw materials, logistics, supply/demand and more
How better planning is the answer and what PMPs and LCOs can do
How working with distributors and manufacturers can help you plan with tools and other resources
Whether operators should raise prices (spoiler: Dan says "always raise prices")
The value of manufacturer assurance programs
How to leverage manufacturer early order programs
Syngenta's PestPartners 365 Program (early order program)
Syngenta's SecureChoice assurance programs
Advice: "The days of ordering it the night before and hoping to have it the following day, that's what I would try to avoid. Just planning a little further ahead than you normally did and projecting some of those needs will go a long way." —Dave Ravel
