Meet Rich Lee - Agronomist


As a long-standing Iowa State University agronomy alum, Rich draws upon a broad background in his role covering eastern Iowa Golden Harvest agronomy. Rich’s agricultural experience encompasses crop production, research, retail supply management, and diagnosing field issues for corn and soybean farmers.

To deliver the Service 365 year-round commitment to doing whatever it takes to optimize yield results and tailored insights from our E-Luminate® digital agronomy platform, Rich asks a lot of questions to calculate which hybrids have the highest probability of success for a farmer. “The output is really simple, and it’s right down to the local level. It’s not looking across the whole state, it’s looking right at their farm,” Rich explains. “When you get down to that kind of level, that really gets people’s attention and it really means something, too.”

This digital technology, paired with Rich’s decades of experience and desire to see his farmers succeed, is a powerful combination. “I really like being a seed agronomist,” he says. “I started with our experimental hybrids, and I work with them as they come out and through their entire life span. I know these products pretty well, and I’ll use that in combination with E-Luminate for the best results.”

Rich’s hobby is fixing up old Jeeps. He enjoys restoring and keeping them running, giving his projects attention and more than a little finesse. The same attention to detail, consistency and presence are what make Rich an outstanding agronomist – one who appreciates the process he works through with farmers, finding the right tools and products to meet goals and achieve profit potential.
