to Know Your DEKALB® Representative
long have you been with Monsanto?
have been with Monsanto since 2011.
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.
