New Channel Seedsman Comes To Nodaway County

Cody Blackford To Bring Local Growers Personalized Service, Elite Seed Products

   Putting Seedsmanship at Work® into practice, Channel has hired Cody Blackford as a Channel Seedsman in the Nodaway County area.
   Blackford’s role will be to work proactively 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.
   Blackford has five years of experience in the field after graduating from Kirkwood College and working for Agriland FS, Inc. and MFA Inc. He will cover Nodaway County and is already out in the fields working with farmers to help them make the right decisions for their individual farms.

   “Building relationships with farmers starts with a knowledgeable and committed Seedsman like Cody,” said Channel District Sales Manager Craig Stiens. “We are excited to have him on board and ready to leverage his experience to help make our customers more productive and profitable.”
   One of Blackford’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 farmers’ 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: seedling, reproductive, vegetative and maturity.
