Tom Chandler Joins Agnition Team


Agnition, a brand of Ralco, adds Tom Chandler to its team as research farm manager and agronomist/seed treatment specialist to further develop the company’s research and sales support efforts.
Chandler’s involvement on his family’s farm and previous work with Chandler Co-Op in Edgerton, Minnestoa, and WFS in Truman, Minnesota, serve as a significant asset in his new position. Chandler will manage Agnition’s five research farms, engage in product development and provide sales support. The company offers two seed treatment products, Commence for wheat and Commence for soybeans, a product that was launched this year.
“Tom will make an immediate impact at Agnition with his agronomy and seed treating experience,” says Evan Johnson, Agnition research manager. “He will be managing the Agnition research farms as well as helping develop new products and provide sales support to our sales team and customers.”
In addition to research efforts, Chandler is eager to work with Agnition customers. “The thing I like most about working with producers, is that every producer faces different challenges,” Chandler says. “I enjoy helping them overcome challenges based on my past experience and developing a plan that benefits everyone.”
Chandler is a native of Balaton, Minnesota, the headquarters of Agnition, and will be relocating to the area with his wife, Alecia, and two daughters.
