Group launches Future Gen Ag LLC
TRURO (FGA) – “U.S. agriculture has made a lot of progress in cover crop use over the past few years,” said Wayne Ebersole, general manager with Future Generation Ag LLC, a newly formed cover crop seed and advisory company, based in Leola, PA. “But we still have a long way to go in order to adequately protect and rebuild our cropland.”
To help accomplish this, Ebersole and three other seasoned cover crop experts – Josh Riker, Jay Lapp, and Konrad Martin – recently launched Future Generation Ag. The four had worked together at Cover Crop Solutions before that company was dissolved earlier this year.
“We decided to try to build back the good we saw in Cover Crop Solutions,” Ebersole said. “We’ve been able to procure seed supplies to make several different cover crop mixes, all similar to those we previously sold.”
As the company begins operations, they’ll offer seed of their Bullseye radish, Buckshot annual ryegrass, FGA Crimson clover, FGA winter pea, FGA winter forage triticale, and cereal rye.
In addition to single species of seed, they’ll have six pre-mixed blends available through the CoverMax brand.
“We’re excited to have access to a number of seasoned cover crop experts with decades of experience and expertise in soil health,” Ebersole said. “We’ll rely on their assistance and our own experience to help (farmers) answer questions and make sure the right products and production information (reaches their) farms.”
Konrad Martin, sales manager for the new venture, said, “We want to continue our work in the cover crop seed industry with a fresh vision for helping seed dealers grow their businesses, and a continued passion for helping farmers improve their soil stewardship.”
