Howard receives crop advising award
Buckeye Farm News
Jeff Howard, a Yield Pro sales specialist for Harvest Land Co-op in Seven Mile, recently received the 2008 Excellence in Crop Advising award from Ohio Farm Bureau and the Ohio Certified Crop Adviser Program.
The award is given to a Certified Crop Adviser who has performed superior service for farmer clients in nutrient management, soil and water management, integrated pest management and crop production.
Howard, who was nominated by Tim Hesselbrock of the Butler County Farm Bureau, works with clients in Butler, Montgomery and Preble counties, where he has also served on Farm Bureau boards and Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) committees.
He works cooperatively with the SWCDs to help landowners meet their environmental requirements and promote soil conservation practices. He has established test plots to demonstrate fertilizer application rates and methods and conducts field days and technical meetings for corn, soybeans, wheat, orchards, vegetables, pastures and forages.
His commitment to the agricultural industry, his farmer clients and his continual effort to improve conservation has resulted in considerable savings to his clients’ operations.
Howard also received $500 from Pioneer, a DuPont Co., in conjunction with the award.
