KENTLAND, INDIANA (July 28, 2015) — Ames, Iowa-based AgVenture GroMor has welcomed Preston Wilson to the growing seed company. Wilson, a native of Mingo, Iowa will serve central Iowa farmers as an AgVenture Yield Specialist.
AgVenture GroMor Owner, Jim Groepper said, “AgVenture GroMor is an exciting young company that is committed to delivering outstanding seed products along with the most current, practical, and applied agronomy science to each customer’s operation. Everything we do is focused on the goals of maximizing yield, lowering cost per bushel, and improving overall profitability.”
Groepper added, “Preston is a willing AgVenture Yield Specialist who listens well to his customers’ needs. His ag background and teaching mentality make him a supportive asset to his customers, and a valuable team member for AgVenture GroMor.”
Wilson is a graduate of Iowa State University and holds a degree in Agriculture Studies. Throughout his college years, Wilson held internship positions in the seed and crop protection business. Last summer, he participated in an intensive intern training program with AgVenture GroMor. He said, “That experience, our team’s strong mentoring, and our customers’ enthusiasm for this approach made it an easy decision to join the company full time.”
“Our approach to our customers’ success is truly unique,” Wilson said. “It allows us to put our experience to work together with each customer’s growing environment and management practices. Growing high-yielding crops profitably requires more than delivering a bag of seed. I appreciate that we make a difference for our growers by being on-site and involved in reaching those new goals.”
Working with other AgVenture GroMor employees, Wilson says he is impressed with the results customers achieve as they implement strategic production tactics including the company’s Maximum Profit System™ (MPS). He added, “MPS is an innovative and forward-thinking system. It leverages specific tactics in the science of growing high-yielding crops throughout the growing season. Our philosophy and dedication is all about being a reliable and trustworthy resource for our customers. Those two tenets together make a distinctive difference. That’s why I enjoy going to work every day.”
