CLARKSDALE, MISSISSIPPI/ KENTLAND, INDIANA (January 7, 2016) — Dulaney Seed, Inc. of Clarksdale, Mississippi has welcomed Jay Madison of Vicksburg, Mississippi to serve farmers across northeast Louisiana as their AgVenture Yield Specialist.
Madison has a strong professional background in crop consulting, seed sales and management, as well as precision ag support. He will provide his customers with year round, dedicated seed support along with access to locally adapted and selected seed products, seed that meets or exceeds the industry’s highest quality standards and the Maximum Profit System™ (MPS). MPS is a systems-based approach to dramatically increasing yields, lowering cost per bushel and improving overall profitability.
Dulaney Seed’s Owner, Terry Dulaney said, “Jay’s professional experience is a great asset for our customers as well as our company. As we expand our reach further into Louisiana, it’s critical for us to have professionals on staff to work directly with our customers. It’s our goal to help more of our customers across the region advance their goals on more acres year after year. Jay will help put our high yield strategies to work and make that a reality across the region. ”
Madison said, “I am most excited about helping my customers push their yields to higher levels – not just get by with a corn crop, but to employ some of these ideas, production methods, crop management systems, etc.” He added that a lot has changed in northeast Louisiana crop production systems in the past decade. “Now, with our locally adapted seed products, together with our proven maximum profit strategies, farmers here have many new opportunities available to them that drive profitability. I look forward to earning the respect of my customers.”
“I have a very high regard for Dulaney Seed and my team members,” said Madison. “They are small enough to make independent decisions that directly benefit their customers. They are big enough to get the job done efficiently and professionally. The products and services they bring their customers have a profound, positive effect on their customers’ bottom line.”
Madison holds degrees in History and Political Sciences from Huntingdon College, Montgomery, Alabama. He pursued graduate studies at Mississippi State University in entomology before obtaining his crop consultant’s license. Today, Madison lives in Vicksburg, Mississippi with his wife, Laura Dow, and their two sons and one daughter.
