“We have learned how to stimulate the microbiome and improve the soil structure while seeing a dramatic effect on crops nationwide,” stated Heliae President and CEO, Eric Lichtenheld. “Building our regenerative agriculture story with a best-in-class team ensures us that growers nationwide will get the attention they need for immediate results and long term success.”

Templeton joins the team with over 15 years plus of experience in turf and agriculture sales and management. Norm Davy, Chief Revenue Officer said, “Templeton is going to be an immediate resource to our growers in the southern and east coast markets, providing them custom application recommendations and dedicated soil health recommendations.”

Located in Owensboro, Kentucky, Templeton is driven by the relationships that are cultivated on the farm to ensure customer operations become more efficient and successful. Templeton has worked for national agriculture companies; Actagro and CPS.

“Growers are looking for useful long-term effects on their soil that also provide ROI,” said Templeton. “I wanted to become apart of the Heliae team because I know this is a product that will provide both those opportunities to growers. I want to be at the farm gates to prove what PhycoTerra can not only do for the soil, but for the farmers as well.”

Templeton will be joining the growing agronomy and sales team that is introducing regenerative agriculture practices to growers nationwide.
