    Our Network has Grown Again!

    AGRI-TREND Agrology Welcomes Agri-Coach Johnathon Nagel to our Growing Network!

    Johnathon was born and raised in Three Rivers, MI, USA.  He grew up on a 450-acre gladiolus farm where they grew the flowers for commercial corm production.  He worked on the farm full time for one year after high school and then worked on the production and management side of the business.

    Johnathon went to Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, for four years. He earned his degree in Plant Science.  Here he did some field-scale trials with corn and soybeans. He then returned to the family business after graduation until he and his wife moved to Lacombe, AB at the beginning of 2010.

    In March, Johnathon started working with Agri-Trend Agrology as a Scout.  He is excited to continue in the network as an Agri-Trend Agri-Coach working closely with Chris Solick, fellow Agri-Trend Agri-Coach. 

    He is eager to combine his experience in intensive agriculture with the power of the Agri-Trend Network in order to bring the best agronomic value to growers/clients.
