JOHNSTON, IOWA (August 9, 2016) – The Mayberry Seed Co. team continues to grow. As demand for their seed products and year-round professional seed support services expands across southeast Missouri, they've welcomed AgVenture Yield Specialist Seth Hill of Dexter, Missouri to the team. Mayberry Seed Co. Sales Manager, Matt Mayberry said, "Seth began working with us five years ago while he was still in high school. It's been great to watch him grow and learn, and to play a part in his development as an agricultural professional." Mayberry pointed out that while working as an intern, Hill has been actively involved in all facets of their business. "He has been on farms and in fields focused on local crop production management. He's learned our seed business and seed treatment inside and out. In addition, he has participated in our rigorous training programs. There he learned from some of the country's top agronomy and customer service experts, while interacting with other trainees throughout AgVenture's nationwide network of Regional Seed Companies.
For more than four decades, this family owned and operated Regional Seed Company has been providing farmers across the region with locally selected seed products and professional seed support. He continued, "As a family business, we're proud to acknowledge that with the addition of Seth, we're continuing another family legacy. Seth's father, Bryce Hill, has been a trusted part of our family business for many years." Hill said, "I am ready to put our seed products and Maximum Profit System™ (MPS) to work for our customers. I have seen what MPS can do to dramatically increase yields, improve APH, lower cost per bushel and improve overall profitability. I look forward to helping my customers raise 300-bushel corn crops for many years to come." He added, "The training I've received has been very comprehensive. Our product lineup is stronger than ever. Our team is genuinely focused on each customer's success. I'm very proud to work together to make a positive difference in each field."
Mayberry concluded, "Seth is a real asset to our customers and to our team. He has a passion for farming and is very observant in every situation."
Hill is a recent graduate of Southeast Missouri State University where he majored in Plant and Soil Science.
