We all need to thank these agronomists; left to right, James Hustad, Travis Lund, Taylor Kemper, and Aaron Bengtson for all the hard work they put into last years plots. The planning for our plot offerings for 2018 is complete. The information gained will be of incredible value in going forward especially in the area of weed control. All of our Agronomists have put in a significant amount of work on the plot and we expect you will like the results. We at Ashby Equity are committed to maintaining these plots now and into the future.
Crop Protection Lead
Work has been completed on the upgrades to the fertilizer tower. We upgraded the blender with a new mixing screw, and added a larger discharge chute to speed up truck loading. We are doing this to enhance delivery of fertilizers to our terragators and farmer trucks.
Agronomy Leadership Change
I would like to inform you that James Hustad has been selected to succeed Travis Lund as the Ashby Equity Agronomy Manager. For the past 15 months Travis has been leading the Agronomy Department at a high level. Travis has chosen a position as a territory manager in the ag industry, his last day with the Equity will be April 6. I want to extend a special thank you to Travis for his dedicated service for the past three years or more and wish him continued success in his career.
I am confident our agronomy team will continue to serve our customers with the same passion and pride as they have in the past. With our "Performance Driven" philosophies we will be ready to take care of your agronomy needs.
This spring Taylor Kemper will head up the crop protection sales and service as well as assisting with custom application logistics and scheduling. Likewise, Aaron Bengtson will be our seed sales and service lead also assisting in plant operations, logistics, and scheduling. Both Taylor and Aaron have been with the Equity for almost a year and are well prepared for their roles and the challenges that lie ahead.
James, Doug, Taylor and Aaron will all be in place to handle the fertilizer and chemical sales and service. Doug will continue working half time focusing his efforts on agronomy office support, sales, customer crop planning and agronomy accounting and billing. James will assume the over-all agronomy department leadership position as well as continuing his role as the Equity's Operations Manager preparing for the transition to the General Manager position in the next 12 to 18 months.
