You will be the liaison between that grower and Seminis to ensure they under stand and meet planned volume expectations, seed quality specification and established timely delivery to operation facilities.

This role will be "home-based" in our Warden, Washington office. However, 80% of the work will be done onsite at grower locations in the Eastern Washington territory.
