Midwestern BioAg today announced Jim Krebsbach as its new Vice President of Sales. In this role, Krebsbach will lead the company’s retail and wholesale agronomy sales divisions.
“We were looking for a strategic thinker,” said Midwestern BioAg President Sue Gullickson. “Jim is committed to helping us grow while also retaining high levels of customer service. He can help us identify producers to meet the demand we’re seeing from food companies looking for more nutritious crops.”
“I like being able to talk about nutrient efficiency,” said Krebsbach. “That leads to compelling stories about crop yields, profits, better quality food and forage, and reduced runoff into water supplies. I’m excited to help more growers achieve these goals.”
Krebsbach was Vice President and General Manager of the Ag Division at Nachurs in Marion, Ohio. In that role, he was responsible for sales, marketing and P&L for the Ag Division, which includes the Alpine and Nachurs brands along with international sales. Before that, he was a Performance Ag Leader at Cargill AgHorizons, overseeing a product line of crop inputs at two Minnesota-based retail locations. He served on the Minnesota Crop Production Retailers Association board, and was a Minnesota Nitrogen Fertilizer Plan committee member. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Plant & Animal Systems and Agronomy from the University of Minnesota.
Midwestern BioAg manufactures and distributes fertilizers that build soil health while increasing yields and nutritional quality of both food and forage. Its products and practices engage soil life, ensure nutrient use efficiency, build soil organic matter, improve crop resiliency and increase the long-term productivity of farmland.
