AgVenture® Pinnacle™-Ames welcomes new Yield Specialist to the team


AMES, (IA) (December 1, 2017) AgVenture® Pinnacle™-Ames announced today the hiring of Nick Kellner as an AgVenture Yield Specialist to work with growers in Kossuth and Humboldt counties in Iowa.

AgVenture Pinnacle-Ames is committed to providing customers with premium quality AgVenture® brand seed products and year-round professional seed services and support.

"We are very pleased to have Nick come on board,” said AgVenture Pinnacle-Ames General Sales Manager Jim Groepper. “Nick was raised on a family farm in the area and understands farming in this region. He will offer great product and service information tailored to North Central Iowa."                                                                         

Kellner grew up on a small family farm close to Livermore, Iowa. After graduating from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agronomy and a minor in Ag Business, he put his education to work in agronomy sales in Lu Verne, Iowa.

“I have always enjoyed selling seed because it is the heart of every farm,” said Kellner. “Every great harvest starts with great seed and AgVenture prides itself on high quality, high yielding seed, which is what caught my attention.”

Kellner said he is also impressed by AgVenture’s Maximum Profit System™, a systems-based approach to dramatically increasing yields, while lowering cost per bushel and improving overall profitability on every acre.

“AgVenture offers a full spectrum of cutting-edge tools and techniques that go along with raising a crop, implementing the agronomic and economic decisions that help our customers maximize profitability. We also have great people to work with,” said Kellner.
