Make your nominations now and get a YETI® tumbler* as a thank you for helping us find the top operator. The three finalists selected will receive an all-expense paid trip to ARA in San Antonio, Texas, where the winner will be announced. The 2021 Operator of the Year will receive the coveted Operator of the Year Plaque and a side-by-side utility vehicle, plus 100 hours on the new Fendt RoGator*.


We know that a good operator can meet a million different things. That can range from keeping crops in good order, showing up on time and being thorough. Please share all the things that make that person great! And also make sure to elaborate on the following:

  • Service, quality and consistency over time in application. This represents the operator's ability to do a great job. They are getting referrals, going above and beyond and honing their skill set. 
  • Organizational and customer impact — teamwork, mentoring, training and leadership. 
  • Service to local community and community involvement. Ex. coaching little league, volunteer fireman, donating to local non-profits, etc.


We’re proud to recognize the top custom applicators in North America who spend hundreds of hours in the field every year caring for crops, customers and communities.

*Fendt RoGator time can be redeemed in 2022.  Dependent on inventory availability. Yeti Tumblers will be sent to the first 50 applicants.
