~ Today’s blog is brought to you by Derek Erb
Today I realized that we are starting into our 10th year in business as Derek Erb Seeds, Independent sales representatives for DuPont Pioneer. I began thinking back to when it was just Erin and me, running our seed business from my truck and our kitchen table with the goal of providing growers in our area with premium seed, services, and agronomy.
We’ve been blessed by the friends and neighbors like you who have entrusted us with being able to help your farm operations succeed and grow, and over the years you have helped us do the same. Four years ago, we were lucky to bring on Dwight because of this very reason.
Dwight has done and continues to do an amazing job helping us achieve that level of commitment to our growers. And now we find ourselves lucky once again in bringing on a new team member who shares our same values and commitment goals. Derek, Dwight and Erin are pleased to announce the addition of Richard Dureault to Derek Erb Seeds team.
Richard currently farms in the Fannystelle area with his brother and Dad where they also offer custom planting and grain drying services. Richard, who completed is Ag Diploma in 2011 and achieved his Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) designation, was appointed to the board of directors for the Manitoba Corn Growers Association in 2016.
With the addition of Richard, we are also pleased to announce a second soybean bulk treating facility in Fannystelle, operated by Richard and his brother Jeremie on their yard, which will offer Pioneer Hi-Bred varieties specifically suited to our area for their strong agronomic traits.
More information to come, but in the meantime, to all our valued growers out there, we wish you a safe and successful harvest.
