AMES, IOWA (July 21, 2017) — Boone and Story County area farmers have a new resource for premium quality AgVenture® brand seed products and year-round professional seed services and support. Johnson Family Sales is the newest seed dealership in the region. Headed by Evan Johnson, the seed dealership is located at 1862 200th St. in Boone, Iowa.
Johnson graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Ag Business. He grew up farming in the Boone County area alongside his uncle, Jeff Johnson, and grandfather, Bob Johnson. They continue to work together and raise beef cows.

The products, combined with the year-round professional seed support, help our customers improve profitability on every acre. Delivering a means to their improved profitability is my goal.”
