Field2Field Agronomy Inc.
I have worked in the Agriculture Retail Industry for the past 25 years. Started my career in Carman at A&M Soil Services in 1995 as Sales Agronomist and worked there as well as with Linear Grain for 5 years. I then spent the next 13 years with Cargill based out of the Elm Creek Location involved in agronomy at the location level and managing the southern Manitoba agronomy team for a number of years as well. Following my time at Cargill I changed my focus to more sales and agronomy support with Bud McKnight Seeds Ltd. in the Carman area for a short period of time as well as a short tenure with Richardson Pioneer based out of their Mollard Location.
Most recently I started my own independent Crop Consulting company called Field 2 Field Agronomy Inc. in January of 2016. Field 2 Field Agronomy Inc is based out of Carman, Manitoba providing comprehensive, unbiased and objective crop management services and advice to farmers in South Central Manitoba. Field 2 Field Agronomy Inc. services approximately 80,000 acres with 3 full-time agronomists including myself and 3 summer agronomy assistants.
I currently have both a Professional Agrologist status with the Manitoba Institute of Agrologists as well as a Certified Crop Advisor with the American Society of Agronomy. I have also been involved in a number of committees and chairing responsibilities for the Manitoba Agronomist Conference, Manitoba Soil Science Society, Manitoba Soil Advisory Council and currently Manitoba Rep. for the Prairie Certified Crop Advisor Board. I have also performed and continue to perform a number of speaking engagements at local grower and industry meetings as well as speaking at other key events like Manitoba Ag Days, The Manitoba Agronomist Conference and the Crop Connect Conference. More recently I am currently contributing agronomic articles to Better Farming Magazine.
