Get to know more about Mark and his perspective on the seed industry!
How did you enter the seed industry? Curtis & Curtis Seed was looking for a salesman around the time I was graduating from Texas Tech. Blake and Tye gave me a chance, and we've built a long-term relationship.
Why did you want to work at Curtis and Curtis Seed Company? It was a family-owned business in the community that I grew up in. I knew a little about what they did but had no idea the markets they supplied and the potential that would come of it!
What is your favorite part about working here? I enjoy the people that I work with on a daily basis. Our customers are also amazing people with a very optimistic outlook on agriculture. One of the best parts of my job is looking for grass throughout the southwest to harvest. I have the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful places in the world.
What is your favorite product you sell? I enjoy selling Blue Grama. Blue Grama is extremely tough and very prevalent throughout the southwest. It is a great addition to all reclamation mixes and forage blends and is also a great grass planted as a monoculture.
What is something most people don't know about the seed industry? The seed industry has some of the best people around!
