Meristem and Mid State Ag, LLC Come Together to Serve Indiana Farmers

Meristem Crop Performance Group, LLC and Marcus Tishner from Mid State Ag, LLC recently announced a dealership agreement to aid farmers in Northcentral Indiana. Mid State Ag will offer the Meristem Crop Performance line, joining Meristem in helping farmers maximize each dollar spent on crop inputs.

“Marcus Tishner is known for hard work and practical solutions that make the most of every seed planted on those acres he touches in Indiana,” said Mitch Eviston, founder and CEO of Meristem, in a press release.  “We’re excited to be able to come alongside him as he serves his farmer-customers and also gain from his agronomic know-how and field experience as we add new products.”

Tishner has already seen the benefits of Meristem products through farmers he knows.

“I like Meristem’s line-up,” he said. “I’m already seeing great results from Revline Advanced, Meristem’s plant growth regulator. It’s increased root mass and really helped plant health this year. HOPPER THROTTLEtheir talc-graphite planter box treatment with microbials, is improving crop stand and making planting time a little easier, too.”

Mid State Ag presently serves farmers in various Indiana counties including Tipton, Howard, Clinton, Cass and Miami. They will now provide Meristem’s full product portfolio with seed treatments under brands such as “RACEREADY, HOPPER THROTTLE planter box treatments, REVLINE plant growth regulators, TRUTRACK drift control, AQUADRAFT water conditioners and surfactants and HOMESTRETCHnitrogen stabilizers, micronutrients and foliar nutritionals,” shared the release.

A new line of biologicals coming to the market, including EXCAVATOR, are of special interest.

“Individual customer service is what drives our business,” said Tishner. “The farmers I serve have different farming methods, different soils and different goals and it’s my mission to help each of them make the most of every crop. Partnering up with Meristem comes from our desire to service them even better and continually improve their ROI (return on investment).”

Eviston said Tishner’s family centered mindset and ‘farmer-first’ mentality make Mid State Ag and Meristem a great match to serve Indiana farmers.

“Providing more opportunities for farm businesses like Tishner’s is a key part of our mission,” said Eviston. “We’ve set up Meristem to cut waste from the distribution channel while providing high-quality crop input additives to help American farmers reduce costs and increase yield, so they are more competitive in a global market. Now, with the help of Marcus Tishner and his family, we’ll be able to connect with more of the farmers who can benefit.”
