Experienced Seedsman To Serve Growers and Develop Dealers in Kansas and The Plains
Experienced ag agronomist and seed rep Aaron Diederich has joined Meristem Crop Performance® Group, LLC, one of the fastest-growing crop input suppliers in America. Diederich becomes Meristem’s Sales Rep and dealer coach in Kansas and other Plains states, operating out of Hanover, Kansas.
“Aaron Diederich is a service-oriented expert at helping farmers get solid crop production results,” says Mitch Eviston, Meristem Founder and CEO, in announcing the hire. “Aaron knows his stuff and has a passion for serving farmers. We are excited to gain the value of his experience as we continue to grow our Meristem business in Kansas and surrounding states.”
Diederich has deep experience in the unique challenges of Kansas crop production at field-level, growing up on a diversified family farm operation near Hanover, Kansas, where he is still involved. The farm is now in its fourth generation.
“Being a farmer keeps it all real,” says Diederich. “It really helps me understand what all of my farmer-customers are going through, so I can better come alongside with the service and products that will help them.”
Diederich earned a bachelor’s degree in ag economics from Kansas State University, with a specialization in farm management. After an internship with three local Channel Seed dealers, he spent nearly seven years as an Agri-Gold representative, being elevated to District Manager.
“My experience selling seed has improved my whole look at crop production,” Diederich says. “Choosing the right seed is such an important decision, and it brings with it the desire to make the most of each one in the bag or box. That’s where Meristem’s awesome product portfolio can make a big difference.” Diederich will operate from Hanover, Kansas, where he lives with his wife Sydney, their daughter Macklynn and son, Holt.
“Meristem’s people and products are oriented toward boosting ROI for farmers and that fits perfectly with my personal mission of farmers and family out here,” says Diederich. “I’m really excited to get started.”Back
