COLUMBUS, Ohio — Meristem Crop Performance Group, LLC and Keller Enterprises, LLC have announced a new strategic supply agreement to serve farmers in East Central Ohio.
Under the new relationship, the Meristem Crop Performance product line becomes a key component of Keller Enterprise’s new agronomic product offering and Keller becomes Meristem’s ally in helping farmers make the most of every dollar they spend on crop inputs.
“Kevin Keller and his team have built a solid business all about serving farmers with top-notch advice, insight and service,” says Mitch Eviston, Meristem Founder and CEO, in announcing the agreement. “We’re excited to be connected with such a quality operation.”
Kevin Keller, Owner and President, says his team is building Keller Enterprises to “bring the very best agronomic consulting, crop input and custom application services to meet specific needs of farmers in East Central Ohio.” He views adding the Meristem portfolio as an opportunity to help improve return on investment (ROI) for every farmer he serves.
“Meristem Crop Performance has that same attitude toward helping growers gain a better ROI,” he says. “Our alliance with them will enable us to help our growers make the most of every seed and every pass they make through the field – with high quality inputs at prices that help farmers make more money and keep more of what they earn.”
Keller Enterprises will now offer Meristem’s product portfolio, including seed treatments under the brand RACEREADY™ and HOPPER THROTTLE, REVLINE™ plant growth regulators, TRUTRACK™ drift control, AQUADRAFT™ water conditioners and surfactants, UPSHIFT starter fertilizers and HOMESTRETCH™ nitrogen stabilizers, micronutrients, and foliar nutritionals. Of special interest is a line of biologicals Meristem is bringing to market, including EXCAVATOR, a new biological designed to break down tough crop residue.
As a farmer himself, Keller says he understands farmers want broad choices in crop inputs to achieve the best results for their own acres. “Adding Meristem’s product line will bring more opportunities for our farmer-customers,” he says.
“We’ve set up Meristem to be the lean provider of high-quality crop input additives to help American farmers reduce costs and increase yield, so they are more competitive in a global market,” says Eviston. “Now, with the help of Kevin and his team, we’ll be able to connect with more of the farmers who can benefit.”
