The locally owned and operated regional seed company welcomed sales professionals from across Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky to participate in the intensive three-day workshop.

AgVenture D&M Sales Manager, Brian Maxwell said, "Our focus is always, first and foremost, on our customers' profitability.
