KENTLAND, INDIANA/ROSCOE, SOUTH DAKOTA (August 13, 2014) — Kevin Scherr has joined the family business, AgVenture Scherr’s Seed. As an AgVenture Yield Specialist, he will provide year-round professional seed support to customers in north central South Dakota.
AgVenture Scherr’s Seed President Steve Scherr said, “I am very proud to officially welcome Kevin to our team. He really is an invaluable resource and support to the business, to our customers, and to our team members. Besides welcoming him as a professional, I’m proud to have my son joining our family business. He has grown up working in and around all that we do. He fully understands our commitment to our customers and their profitability.”
Kevin Scherr said, “This is the job for me. I’ve grown up learning the business and have always known this is what I wanted to do. Through the years, I’ve enjoyed participating in every aspect of our business; from seed treatments to inventory, from learning all about our hybrids and varieties to supporting customers in the field. I truly enjoy working with our customers and look forward to a long career helping them advance their goals.”
During the last several years, Steve Scherr says the Roscoe-based independently owned and operated Regional Seed Company has continued to experience tremendous growth across the Dakotas. He notes that as more customers select and plant the locally adapted seed, they are actively shifting more or all of their acres to the AgVenture® seed products.
“Our hybrids and varieties are really performing well. We have access to the latest and best seed genetics and technologies available in the seed industry. It’s a deep portfolio of products that are specifically adapted to our Dakota growing environments. Our team of AgVenture Yields Specialists works directly with our customers year-round to help them do all they can to maximize their profitability. Our Maximum Profit System™ is helping customers dramatically increase yields, lower cost per bushel and improve overall productivity. We are pleased to continue to expand our team to serve Dakota farmers,” Scherr said.
