Job Description

Agronomist / Crop Advisor

Valley Wide Coop / Valley Agronomics is looking for several additional Crop Advisors. If you are currently looking for a better opportunity for yourself, then this is the career path for you. If you have at least two years of agronomy experience and are searching for the next step in your career development with a company that promotes based on performance, not years of service, please contact us today.

As a crop advisor you’ll be responsible for promoting, selling and supporting crop nutrients, crop protection products, seed and services for local producers.  You’ll spend much of your allotted work time in sales related activities with producers to determine their needs and sell the retailer’s crop production product and service programs.  This person should have interest in the latest precision agriculture equipment, as well.

In order to be considered, candidates must possess the following qualifications and attributes:
  • Minimum of 2 years agronomy experience
  • Strong technical knowledge of fertilizer, chemical and seed products
  • Educational Degree in Agronomy or related field (preferred)
  • Stable work history and track record of sales success
  • CCA Certification (preferred) and must have clean driving record
Valley Ag is going to build a team of agronomists at each location that will serve the customer’s needs at all levels.  We understand that the customer of today expects more and may have different needs than that of the customer of the past. Our goal is to add only the best people to our team to bring value to our customers. The cornerstone to assembling the right group of people is to remember that today’s customers will demand:
  • Professionalism
  • Honesty
  • Intelligence
  • Aggressiveness
  • Innovation
  • Problem solving skills
  • Courtesy and Service
In regards to what Valley Ag will provide, our philosophy is that each crop advisor will have the support staff to follow up on what you have set in motion – equipment, products, mapping, spreading, delivery, testing etc. - for each customer. This allows you to spend your time more efficiently and effectively.  

Valley Agronomics offers a competitive salary and benefits package.
