Get to Know Your DEKALB® Representative

How long have you been with Monsanto?

I have been with Monsanto since 2011.

What are your areas of agronomic expertise or special interests?

My area of agronomic expertise is canola stand establishment, but I also have a special interest in how new technology can improve environmental sustainability and how it is allowing farmers to produce more with a lower impact on the environment.

Why do you love working with farmers?
I think what I love most about working with farmers is their diversity. Farmers are required to wear so many hats: they need to know agronomics, economics, mechanics, technology and how it applies to their operation – all the facets of being business owners. I respect the risks a farmer takes, being at the mercy of mother nature. And I think it is cool how most farmers have a tie to the history of their land and their operation because, so often, it’s been in their family for multiple generations.
