The new location further extends P&H’s National grain asset network, bringing area producers the chance to leverage global grain marketing opportunities provided by the P&H grain merchandising team, which has over 110 years of experience in matching producer grain with the needs of both domestic and export end users.
The Yorkton facility will continue to be home to a team of experts who will leverage a full suite of seed, crop protection, and crop nutrition products and provide area producers with crop input solutions that fit their farm.
