Putting seedsmanship at Work into practice, Channel has hired Jacob Behnke as a new Channel Seedsman in the Bushton area.
Behnke’s role will be to actively work with local farmers to deliver expert advice, customized service and elite seed products to help improve productivity and profitability. Channel seedsmen focus on getting to know their customers and their farms inside and out, and using that knowledge to provide in-depth, hands-on service and support every step of the way.
“Building relationships with farmers starts with a knowledgeable and committed seedsman like Jacob Behnke,” said Jeremy Abell, Channel district sales manager. “We’re excited to have him on board and ready to leverage his experience to help make our customers more productive and profitable.”
One of Behnke’s primary responsibilities will be implementing the Channel Field Check Up series with local farmers. This series allows Channel seedsmen to work with the farmer throughout the season to observe and monitor crop development.
Walking the farmer’s fields allows Channel Seedsmen to diagnose issues and design custom recommendations to increase the farm’s profitability. Year-round farm visits include personal consultations through the four major growth stages: seeding, reproductive, vegetative and maturity.
