AgVenture Scherr’s Seed reaches eastward – welcomes Virgil Scherr

KENTLAND, INDIANA/ROSCOE, SOUTH DAKOTA (November 11, 2014) — AgVenture Scherr’s Seed has continued to grow, expanding their reach eastward. The independently owned and operated regional seed company has welcomed Sioux Falls’ Virgil Scherr to their team as a Seed Sales Specialist.

Strong product performance augmented by year-round customized professional seed support has increased demand for the Roscoe, South Dakota-based company’s products and services. Scherr’s Seed Owner, Steve Scherr said, “We’re very pleased to welcome Virgil to our company. His dedicated, practical approach to our products and our customers will be very beneficial to our customers. Virgil is a respected professional who is actively farming himself. He will be instrumental in providing our products to farmers across this area.”

Growing up on a family farm, Virgil Scherr has deep roots in production agriculture. Upon semi-retirement from a successful career in owning and operating a commercial refrigeration business, he has again become immersed in farming.

He said, “In owning and farming my own land, I have concentrated on efficiency in my farming practices. I want to know exactly what the soil and seed together can do to provide top yields and solid profitability. I began working with AgVenture Scherr’s Seed on my own land, understanding how these seed products and the total approach to increasing yields, lowering costs per bushel and improving profitability are effective. I hope to bring these products to other local farmers. Beyond the seed, I look forward to helping them access the team of AgVenture Yield Specialists who can help them maximize their production potential.”

We look forward to extending our services to customers throughout eastern South Dakota.
