Caleb is a Certified Crop Advisor that grew up in rural East Central Indiana near a town called New Castle. He earned a B.S. in Biology and Botany, and an M.S. in Agronomy. During graduate school at Purdue University, Caleb researched the relationship between soil physical properties and cover crop diversity. He worked for two years at Beck’s Hybrids and specializes in mechanisms of soil carbon sequestration/storage. While the often misunderstood science of agronomy and pedology may have drawn Caleb toward a career in agriculture, ultimately for him it was the people in the industry that made staying worthwhile.
