Even though he goes by many names depending on who you’re talking to– ‘Corn Whisperer’ being our favorite around the office – you’ll always hear the same thing about Mike Larson no matter who you talk to: a happy, interested, passionate, corn expert!
It’s hard to go far without finding someone who knows and is happy to see Mike… which is why if you’re going somewhere on a tight timeline, walking through a crowd with him might be a bad idea!
Since 2003, Mike Larson has been our resident corn expert at Peterson Farms Seed. Although the technology around farming has changed since his start with us, one thing that has never wavered is Mike’s passion for bringing the best corn genetics and technology to our growers across ND, SD, and MN.
While you may know that Mike loves the Bison, corn, and is rarely without a book nearby to read, you may not know that he has his own language! We have affectionately dubbed this language as ‘Mike-lish’ and it is often spattered with terms, phrases, and corn hybrids in between stories or things he came across that day while out scouting fields or tending to his 400 Bushel Project. His excitement for all things corn is tangible and we love having him on our team… even if he talks at light speed here and there!
As our territory expands across South Dakota, Minnesota, and North Dakota, there are people who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Mike, which is why we asked him to share a few things about himself you might be surprised to hear! Take it away, Mike:
There you have it! We hope after reading a little bit more about Mike Larson, you’ll see why we stand behind our quality and excellence in everything we do. Every member of our team holds themselves to the highest of standard, which projects our products into excellence as well!
