Source: Golden Harvest news release
Chances are, there’s a new local, independent Golden Harvest Seed Advisor in your area. Last year, Golden Harvest expanded its footprint with 156 new Seed Advisors, and the momentum continues as Golden Harvest plans to add 175 more Seed Advisors to its network in 2019.
“With all of the changes in the seed industry, it was really important for me and my customers to align with a major seed company moving forward,” said Nick Coleman, who is a new Golden Harvest Seed Advisor. “Golden Harvest has made great strides in terms of the products, technologies and traits they’re bringing to the farm level. Being able to partner with a company that has the innovation and commitment, to me, was a no-brainer.”
Golden Harvest Seed Advisors help farmers with agronomic selection and placement of Golden Harvest corn and soybeans to maximize their yield potential. Seed Advisors span the Midwest and work with farmers in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Golden Harvest Seed Advisors are backed by Syngenta, a global agriculture leader with a robust research and development pipeline.
In addition to sharing local agronomic knowledge, Golden Harvest Seed Advisors offer hybrids that feature proven genetics protected by high-performing Agrisure traits and technologies. In focused areas, Golden Harvest Seed Advisors can also offer Enogen corn hybrids to help enhance ethanol production, and Enogen Feed corn, which unlocks the energy potential of feedlot and dairy rations.
“When you are selling seed, it has to perform,” said Golden Harvest Seed Advisor Brian McEwen, who has been with Golden Harvest for five years. “However, you are not only selling a quality product, but you are also selling yourself. People buy from you because they believe in you. As Seed Advisors, we’re with farmers the whole way as part of their management decision team so they can do this again the next year and the next year.”
Golden Harvest Seed Advisors deliver customized service to farmers across the Corn Belt. The premier digital ag seed placement tool, E-Luminate, helps them do just that by giving farmers personalized field recommendations. This tool provides decision support using agronomic data to determine which Golden Harvest hybrids will perform best on every acre.
In addition to the rollout of the E-Luminate tool, Syngenta announced an incremental $400 million investment in its seeds business last year.
“Our Seed Advisors are critical to deliver Golden Harvest genetics, agronomy and service to farmers,” said Clayton Becker, head of the Golden Harvest West Commercial Unit. “Giving our Seed Advisors the tools to succeed so they can build personal relationships, share local knowledge and provide customized service is a top priority to help ensure our farmers stay profitable year after year.”
