He is a graduate of SUNY Cobleskill with a degree in Ag Business.
“I am excited to join the Jet Harvest team. They are an innovative company and are forward thinkers, always striving to improve upon existing products and developing new products and applications to offer solutions to growers. Growers of ALL crops will benefit from their product offerings and product labels.”
The Jet Harvest Solutions product line includes Jet-Ag and Jet-Oxide, pre and post-harvest EPA registered peroxyacetic acid products with complete labeled applications from soil sanitation through post-harvest crop disinfection. Jet Harvest has other brand presence with Bio-Save, a post-harvest biological decay control agent, Bio-Soil, their Bacillus-based PGPR formulations, and OsmoPro, a naturally-occurring glycine betaine that aids in environmental stress caused by heat, cold, salinity and drought. Jet Harvest products are exclusively sold through AG Chem distributors.
