JOHNSTON, IOWA (August 9, 2016) – For more than four decades, Mayberry Seed Co., based in Essex, Missouri has provided area farmers with high quality, locally selected seed products. But their commitment to helping their customers goes far beyond the norm. In addition to top-performing seed, they provide their customers with year-round professional seed support.
The company has welcomed, Trevor Jaco of Whitewater, Missouri, as the newest AgVenture Yield Specialist. Trevor will work directly with customers across southeast Missouri and southern Illinois.
Mayberry Seed Co. Sales Manager, Matt Mayberry said, "Trevor has been with us three years as an intern where he has gained experience in every facet of our business. He has participated in our rigorous intern training program where he has been exposed to industry experts in agronomy and customer service. In addition, he's worked with and learned from others across AgVenture's nationwide network of Regional Seed Companies. We're confident in his abilities. When you combine that preparation with his ambition to help customers advance their goals, we're confident in his ability to get the job done."
Jaco said, "This is a great company dedicated to their customers' success. I am very excited about our seed products, and what we can do together to make big improvements in yield and profitability across the area. We have the tools. We have the support. I'm pleased to be part of the team."
In addition to providing seed and in-season professional support, Jaco said, "I'm very excited about our new seed treatment system. It allows us to be incredibly precise with treatment application. Because our seed treatments are extremely uniform, it allows our customers to reap the benefits of that accuracy in performance. We can be far more responsive to the farmer, meeting their needs and providing the most accuracy in seed treatments."
