Our client is the fourth-largest seed breeding company in the world. Their Canadian business focusses on the Hybrid Rye market. They are by far the dominant player in the hybrid rye sector. There is huge growth potential for their Canadian business and the people who work there. Very exciting. We are looking for a sales agronomist with a customer service personality to become their MANITOBA SALES REPRESENTATIVE.
Their hybrid varieties yield 30% better than traditional rye varieties. Fall rye is sustainable because it requires less rain and less fertilizer than most other crops. Rye is seeded in the fall, and harvested early, so there are farm labour, equipment, and crop rotation scheduling advantages. As the new Manitoba Sales Rep most of your role will be educating and supporting Manitoba seed dealers and farmers. You will provide customer service and training to your seed dealers, and you will provide agronomic support and market information to your rye growers to ensure they have a good experience. You will also take every opportunity to build relationships with down-stream markets like grain companies, brokers, ethanol producers and the animal feed markets.
Our ideal candidate is a collaborative communicator with experience selling to prairie AG Retails and prairie farmers. You believe that grower retention and long-term business growth depends on providing great customer service and building solid long-term relationships. To be considered you must have Western Canadian broadacre agronomic experience. Experience growing Canadian winter crops is a definite asset, as is experience with CRM sales tools.
Our client is a family-owned company that is committed to their people, R & D, and the Canadian market. You will be part of a small Canadian collaborative team that enjoys access to the agronomic support, advanced genetics, sales tools, and marketing support of a large international company. You will influence the marketing strategy in Western Canada.
We are eager to tell you all about it. Please make a list of questions and call Steve Peddie at Ag Network. Steve will be happy to answer your questions about this career opportunity. He will keep your inquiry confidential. There’s no obligation. Steve’s direct line is 403 270 9755.
Don’t wait to call because we will fill this position as soon as a suitable candidate is identified.
