AgVenture D&M welcomes new Yield Specialist to the team
KENTLAND, (Ind.) (December 15, 2017) AgVenture D&M, based in Kentland, Indiana, announced today the hiring of Tyler Sloan as an AgVenture Yield Specialist to work with growers across West Central Illinois. Since 1993, the independently owned and operated Regional Seed Company has provided AgVenture® brand seed products supported by agronomic knowledge and personal service to customers across northwest Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
“We are very excited about Tyler coming on board,” said AgVenture D&M owner Mike Davis. “His background includes part ownership in Sloan Farms, LLC, his family farm started by his great grandfather Willis, grandfather Bill and father, Mike. His service on the board of directors for the Sangamon County Farm Bureau will serve our customers well.”
“I believe the manner in which the seed is selected based on the results of multi-year testing in local fields and soil types allows us to make recommendations to my customers based solid national, regional and local testing data,” said Sloan. “Farming has always been my passion. That’s why I became involved in the seed business. I enjoy working with other farmers and selecting products that bring them success.”
Sloan believes that AgVenture consistently offers corn hybrids and soybean varieties that are particularly suited to his region. AgVenture’s seed products are carefully chosen by Regional Seed Companies rather than allocated from a corporate office, allowing them to analyze multiple years of national, regional and local testing data before making their product decisions.
One of the ways Sloan and AgVenture D&M will work with farmers is to help them implement the Maximum Profit System™ (MPS). MPS is a systems-based approach to dramatically increasing yields, while lowering farmers’ cost-per-bushel investment and improving overall profitability. The comprehensive approach helps growers farm smarter using cutting-edge tools and techniques that go a long way toward raising a top crop, implementing the agronomic and economic decisions that maximize profitability.
AgVenture, Inc. is the nation's largest network of independently owned regional seed companies. AgVenture provides this growing network of Regional Seed Companies with seed products meeting exacting standards for quality, together with leading-edge genetics and technology. Since 1983, this unique marketing approach has allowed each individual company to match the hybrids and varieties it sells to the specific needs of the geographical area it serves.
