Silent Shade engages agronomic consultants to help protect plant health and control disease and insects. It employs the latest technology including precision tools, such as aerial imagery, auto steer and variable rate input controllers.
For more on the sustainable practices at Silent Shade:
Jack, who currently serves as President of the Mississippi Soybean Association, graduated from Mississippi State University (MSU) in 2005 with a bachelor’s in Agriculture Economics, and in 2006 with a Masters of Agribusiness, focusing on Agriculture Policy. As part of his graduate work at MSU, Jeremy worked in Washington, D.C., under U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran during 2008 Farm Bill negotiations. After college, Jack returned to the family’s farm rather than pursuing a career in agricultural policy. He believes the potential for Silent Shade and its sustainable practices is “unlimited.”
“I am honored to receive this award from Bayer CropScience because it reinforces the values of good stewardship?toward the earth and the community?that my family has practiced through the years,” Jack said. “With these values and innovative farming techniques, we can maximize profitability and support our rural community for years to come.”
Jack received the 2013 award from last year’s Young Sustainable Farmer, John Shepherd, and Top Producer Editor Jeanne Bernick.
