Meet the Nutrient Use Efficiency People™: Ryan Barham

Agriculture is in Ryan Barham’s blood. Like many of the account managers at Verdesian Life Sciences, he grew up on and around the farm.

“From grading cucumbers at my grandfather’s cucumber market, to being in the tobacco field and going to the market to see how the harvest turned out,” Ryan says, “that all made me really appreciate how hard work and dedication pays off.”

A native of North Carolina, Ryan today is dedicated to helping his agricultural retail customers enjoy the fruits of their labors. An expert in plant nutrition, Ryan was a regional manager for Specialty Fertilizer Products (a legacy Verdesian company), and he has also served as a demand team specialist for Chemtura AgroSolutions, where he worked with retail locations in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. He has also worked for Makhteshim Agan of North America in various positions, including business leader for the Ohio Valley region.

Ryan spent several years serving ag retail customers in the Midwest for Verdesian before returning to North Carolina in 2018. Today he services customers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. However, he feels at home on any farm.

“I’m never too far away from a farm,” says Ryan. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

When he’s not working, you can find Ryan hunting on his family’s land, fishing, or spending time with his family.

In an industry that is historically male-dominated, Jamie Jones more than holds her own. Of course, as a mother of three boys, she is used to hanging with the fellas.

It’s a good thing Bob Pound has a love of travel. After all, the Account Manager for Verdesian Life Sciences has seen a large part of the United States (and the world) thanks to his career in agriculture.
