He earned a Bachelor's Degree in Agronomy with a specialization in Spanish Language from Wilmington College of Ohio.

He then earned his Master's Degree from Kansas State University where he worked with herbicide-resistant weeds in row crop production systems. He specialized in corn, sorghum, wheat, alfalfa and soybean production identifying various populations of glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth and tall waterhemp throughout the state. He and his wife, Jodi, currently reside in Geneseo, NY where they assist with a dry hay production business, which they hope to fully manage and operate in the near future.

Announcements

Important Notice for Licensed Pesticide Applicators

Important Notice for Licensed Pesticide Applicators!

Because of COVID-19, the NYS DEC did not require growers whose licenses expired in November of 2019 or later to renew their applicator's license in order to buy & spray restricted-use materials during the 2020 growing season. That discretionary policy is no longer in effect. If your license expired between November 2019 and Nov. 23, 2020, you must obtain the full number of recertification credits and renew your license. Starting Nov. 24, 2020, you cannot buy or apply pesticides until your license has been renewed. The DEC is giving growers a 90-day grace period before adding penalty credits to overdue renewal applications. Growers should complete COVID-delayed license renewals by February 23, 2021. If your license expires after Nov. 23, 2020, you will follow the typical DEC renewal process.
