KENTLAND, IN / CLARKSDALE, MS (April 23, 2013) – Agriculture professional Randy Marsh has joined AgVenture Mid-South and will serve East Central Arkansas farmers as AgVenture Yield Specialist.
Marsh is the owner/operator of the Woodruff County family farm where he was born and raised, and that has been farmed by generations of his family since the mid 1800’s. He is a passionate advocate for agriculture and has served the ag industry at the local, state and national levels through Farm Bureau programs and leadership positions.

His experience and leadership in farming and marketing make him a real asset to our customers and to our team. We are very pleased to welcome him and we’re confident in his commitment to our customers’ success.”
Marsh said, “As I looked to retire from daily operations of farming, I was anxious to continue to be involved in helping others grow their farming operations. I appreciate the focus AgVenture brings to finding the best seed products for the given growing environment and helping farmers maximize profit on every acre.” Maximizing yield is crucial to maximizing profitability, and Marsh said AgVenture Mid-South fully understands the challenges and opportunities in growing crops. “It starts with the seed, but continues with tools and techniques that support our customers’ ability to have an edge, be ahead of the curve in supporting crop growth and development for maximum results.”
