Jon is based in southeastern Minnesota and grew up working on a dairy farm near Willow River, where he was immersed in agricultural systems and science from an early age. His passion for providing high-quality care for his animals, crops and the environment led him to study the chemical and molecular systems in plants and animals, earning Bachelor of Science degrees in chemistry and biology from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Jon later went on to earn a Master of Science degree in biochemistry from the University of Iowa.
In his role, Jon uses his 14 years of experience as an agronomist to focus on understanding the complexities of protecting crops from pests and diseases, and recommending sustainable solutions that benefit farmers.
