    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.

    Chris was raised on his family farm east of Vulcan, AB where they run a mixed operation that work with 3500 dry land acres and run 110 cow/calf pairs. This is where his passion for farming came to be. Following his interests, Chris decided to attend Lethbridge College where he received a diploma in Plant and Soil Sciences.

Throughout his university career, Chris found himself employed at Hamman Ag Research where he has been employed for the last three summers working with over a dozen crops and a wide array of crop inputs. His love for agrology and learning grew each year from seeding to spraying and scouting to harvesting various research trials under the helpful watch of Dr. Bill Hamman. His experience with a senior coach has led Chris to looking into AGRI-TREND and its progressive possibilities. As an Agri-Coach, Chris is eager to work with his family farm and other in the Lethbridge/Vulcan area to better their understanding of this fast moving industry. With the tools that the AGRI-TREND network offers to its coaches, and the cutting edge of the Agri-Data Solution software, he feels confident working alongside farmers to learn and solve issues to move their operations forward.

    AGRI-TREND® USA is pleased to welcome Susan Hodges, as Geo-Coach to our growing network!

    I grew up on a farm in the rolling hills of Eastern Washington. My family has been farming here for over 100 years, growing wheat, barley, peas and lentils. In high school, I was very involved in FFA, earning my District Star Farmer and American Degree. During college, our Ag Technology club and Fastpitch softball team took up most of my time. My family's farm is very important to me and I enjoy spending time helping Mom and Dad out during busy times. Flying and trapshooting are hobbies I enjoy with friends and family. Obtaining my Private Pilot License is my next personal goal. Since college I have worked for two farms that are very progressive. Work done for them eventually lead to a passion in precision application and data management. Becoming a Geo-Coach will allow me to focus strictly on the precision side of agriculture. I am excited to join the network of coaches that have an abundance of knowledge all over the continent. I will stay in the Eastern Washington area, but I am excited to travel wherever I am needed.
