Open for Business with Kaylinda DeTurk, Ag-Q Connect, LLC.
Kaylinda DeTurk is a busy mom of four (all under six), an agriculture wife, and a multi-faceted entrepreneur from Overton, Neb. In addition to a photography business and chasing around a whole lot of kids, DeTurk and her husband, Jarod, Ag-Q Connect, LLC. Ag-Q is a simple platform that connects producers with local, independent agronomists to provide a one-time, one-issue recommendation without any long-term contracts or commitments. Typically, an agronomy solutions program comes with a minimum of a one-year contract and commitment. Our system was born out of a hole we identified in the agronomy industry — simple, cost-effective agronomy knowledge and help. Ag-Q involves two parts: a producer who has a question or issue in their field but doesn’t need an agronomist all the time; and a local (to them), independent agronomist who can help answer their question or solve their problem. Our connection-based platform unites knowledge the agronomist has to the question or issue that the producer is struggling with. This system benefits both producers who may only have one question (although they can submit multiple questions individually) and independent agronomists who have signed up to supplement their income or remain in the agriculture industry after retirement. Their stated goal with Ag-Q is simple: to support agriculture from all sides and help make the industry better for everyone. “Open for Business: A Nebraska Women in Agriculture Agripreneurship Series” is a monthly webcast series that highlights the entrepreneurial spirit of women in agribusiness from across the state, offering creative insights and the stories behind what it takes to build a business.
