AgVenture® Pinnacle™-Nebraska welcomes new Yield Specialist to the team
OMAHA, (Neb) (February 26, 2018) AgVenture® Pinnacle™-NE announced today the hiring of Jason Weber as a new AgVenture Yield Specialist. Weber will serve as a new resource for premium quality AgVenture® brand seed products and year-round professional seed services and support to growers in Hutchinson, Yankton, Bon Homme, Davidson and Hanson counties.
AgVenture Pinnacle-NE is committed to providing customers with locally selected and adapted hybrids and varieties, with the industry’s highest standards for seed quality.
“AgVenture prides itself on understanding our customers’ operations better than anyone else,” said AgVenture Pinnacle-NE General Sales Manager Jeremy McCroden. “Jason has spent more than two decades in the Ag retail business before transitioning into an agronomy sales position where he analyzed soil samples for growers. His background will provide our customers the analysis of their fields and farming practices to develop a custom cropping plan which will help them reach their goals."
In addition to his ag retail business experience, Weber ran variable rate technology programs providing herbicide and fungicide applications as well as seed recommendations based off soil and yield maps combined with crop scouting.
“AgVenture’s focus on individual growers was a real draw for me,” Weber said. “This is a company that offers both the genetics and the seed quality which is critical to our customers. This is a big opportunity for growers in southeast South Dakota in terms of genetic diversity where we have different environmental conditions and farming practices.”
Weber will also work with growers to help them implement the Maximum Profit System™ (MPS). MPS is a systems-based approach to dramatically increasing yields, while lowering a 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.
Weber grew up on a dairy farm near Dimock, South Dakota; raising cattle, corn, soybeans and alfalfa. He, his wife, Stacy, and their three sons continue to live on the family farm.
