WICHITA, KANSAS, US — Dan Dall has joined Limagrain Cereal Seeds (LCS) team as the Central Plains regional commercial manager.
“My family didn’t have a farm, but I grew up farm-adjacent,” Dall said. “I always gravitated toward the farm kids.”
When he went to Kansas State University with plans to major in biology, he felt that same pull toward agriculture.
“I had to take some agronomy classes to fill graduation requirements, and once I got in those classes, everything clicked,” he said.
Dall changed majors and never looked back. After school, Dall used his agronomy knowledge to build a career in chemical and seed sales — helping farmers maximize their returns for a range of crops.
“Soybeans, corn, sorghums, sunflowers, cover crops and, of course, you can’t be in South Central Kansas and not work with wheat,” Dall said. “Wheat has been a constant, whether I was selling chemicals for it, putting soybeans or another crop behind it, getting corn off in time to get wheat in, or selling certified wheat seed.”
He also managed agronomy operations for companies along the way. Dall brings 23 years of ag experience to LCS. His territory includes Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas and New Mexico.
“I probably look at things a little differently than somebody who’s not an agronomist, and I think that will help farmers down the road,” said Dall, who is excited to be working with senior wheat breeder Dr. Marla Barnett to help drive the future of wheat in the region.
“Dan is a great fit for the Central Plains team,” Barnett said. “His extensive knowledge of wheat seed and farming practices will help growers make informed choices for their acres.”
Limagrain Cereal Seeds is a cereal breeding operation that develops new wheat and barley varieties bred expressly for farmers’ climates, soils and growing conditions.
