AgVenture Wehmeyer Seed Company expands into east central Missouri.
“As we expand into Missouri, we are excited to welcome Shane Nicks as our district sales manager and yield specialist,” says Matt Wehmeyer, sales and marketing director. “Shane will bring our locally-adapted, high-yielding seed products to new customers looking to enhance their farm profitability.”
Based in Mascoutah, Illinois, Wehmeyer Seed is a regional seed company producing and distributing high-quality seed for farmers in the Midwest.
A native of Owensville, Missouri, Nicks grew up on a crop and cattle operation. He earned a degree in agricultural business and a minor in marketing from University of Central Missouri at Warrensburg.

He’ll be a great asset to our customers, sharing the value of the AgVenture brand.”
