A little About ME...

My goal in beginning Midplains Ag was to start an agronomy services company that uses data and technology to help farmers manage more profitably and efficiently while minimizing environmental impacts. In contrast to many similar companies, I wanted to have a clear separation from selling agronomy inputs. This gives our customers the freedom to choose to purchase inputs based on price and service — not on who controls their data. I strive, along with the rest of our group, to work with products and services based on sound scientific principles.

In contrast to many similar companies, I wanted to have a clear separation from selling agronomy inputs.

After graduation from the University of Nebraska with a degree in soil science in 1973, I have farmed in the Elgin, NE area. I have many years of experience farming and irrigating the sandy soils on the eastern edge of the Nebraska Sandhills. I have also served on the Upper Elkhorn NRD, the Nebraska Corn Board, the Nebraska Corn Growers and the Nebraska Water Policy Taskforce.
