AGRI-TREND® would like to welcome Tim Eyrich to the team as Director of Business Development - Agri-Knowledge
Tim grew up in a Bowie AZ, a very small town in southeastern Arizona. His high school graduation class was a whopping 8 people. Tim’s interest in agriculture began on his wife’s family farm where they produced cotton, grain sorghum and edible beans on about 300 acres of furrow irrigated soil. Tim graduated from the University of Arizona in 1983 and shortly thereafter he moved to West Tennessee where he started an independent consulting company. For the next 12 crop years Tim consulted on cotton, corn, rice and peanuts. He services were complete agronomics, from plant nutrition to PGR’s and defoliants, twice a week insect scouting and variety placement. In 1995 they moved to western Nebraska where Tim was an agronomist for a large chip potato grower (10,000 acres of pivot irrigated crops). His main responsibility was managing the seed potato production and all noncommercial potato crops which included; dairy quality alfalfa, sugar beets, corn and dry beans. In 1998 Tim decided to focus on his passion for crop physiology and concentrate on crop nutrition and PGR’s. For the last 17 years Tim has held various technical and business positions within the plant nutrition and yield enhancement industry. For the last 2 years Tim has been managing the Research and Product Development for all crop nutrition, PGR’s, bio stimulants, biologicals, irrigation management and seed treatment products for WinField.
Tim says his 37 crop years have been a blessing. He has been able to work with growers from 16 different countries across 28 different crops. Tim has enjoyed teaching agronomist in Russia, Mexico and Brazil to look at crop production within the system that it grows in and manage each component of the system and their interactions.
Tim’s career has instilled in him the Urgency of a Grower, the Vision of an Innovator, the Stewardship of a Businessmen and the Teaching of a Consultant. The best place that an agronomist can be is a Grower Centric independent advisor. Tim looks forward to his role within AgriTrend.
