Agronomy Sales Management / Area Sales Manager - Ag Products
I am currently an Account Manager for a long-established Agronomy Services organization. I perform agronomy and natural resource consulting to Ag growers in my area. I am also an accomplished and energetic hands-on working Agricultural manager, providing excellent communication and service to our customers and to my Agronomy sales and operations team. My experience includes, but is not limited to: Preparing business and operating orders and plans; organizing and conducting field trials; collecting and analyzing data, crop yield and financial reports to measure performance; visiting growers to identify and evaluate their business and/or technical requirements, then assisting them with business planning, scheduling chemical and fertilizer applications, government programs, new technology and cropping systems; marketing and promoting agronomy consultancy services to prospective growers while maintaining strong existing grower relations; and, continuous research to stay up-to-date with all relevant Agricultural developments impacting my customers. In addition, I bring to an employer: my strong work ethic and willingness to perform assigned duties to get the job done right the first time; my ability to work extremely well within a team or alone; my knowledge and experience with production Agriculture, range and pasture, and cow/calf operations; my willingness to take direction and be an effective communicator and leader; my ability to establish and maintain great community relationships; my ability to develop strategies and recommendations for individual farm and ranch assets; and, most of all, my highly honest personality with strong morals and integrity.
I would like to find a role as an Area Sales Manager covering a territory of up to 3 states where I can continue developing my Agronomy career. I'm negotiable on my compensation package with a desire to grow my income based on my performance. I am available for hire with a two-week notice.
I was born and raised on a 1500 acre dry land farm. I have a strong farm back ground of which I am very proud. I truly enjoy working with people in the Ag Industry. Upon graduating from the University of Idaho, I operated the family farm with my Father for 7 years. Hay production experience includes field preparation, variety selection, seeding, weed control, fertility (deep band and foliar), soil analysis, tissue analysis, harvest timing/scheduling, mowing/cutting, tedding, raking and baling. He has operated a variety of equipment including 60-200hp front-wheel assist wheel tractors, 300-580hp rubber track type articulated and straight steer, tillage equipment, self-propelled and pull-type swathers, round balers, square balers, light trucks and heavy semi-tractor/trailer combinations. He has good maintenance, fabrication, mechanical and welding skills. Growth opportunities were limited (farm land was not available for expansion) so I decided to enter AgRetail. I have worked with growers from 500 ac to 5000 acres in size. Many of these growers have relied heavily on my input in cropping decisions. I have been a service tech, sales consultant, Agronomist, branch manager, and account manager. I would like very much to manage or assist the manager of a farm or farm/ranch, which, I feel, would allow me to use many of the skills that I have learned over the years to help make the best decisions and maximize farm/ranch ROI and profitability.
