Meet the Nutrient Use Efficiency People™: Chris Wynn

Chris is Verdesian’s account manager for Washington and Oregon, specializing in Verdesian’s nutritional, polymer, micronutrients and biological technologies for specialty growers.

His work experience is very diverse, with most of it coming from an agricultural base in the last decade as a commercial harvesting operator, crop consultant, and as a technical agronomist.

Chris holds a doctorate in Plant Health (D.P.H.) from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Chris went to college in Idaho; he earned his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Brigham Young University Idaho. He then moved to Lincoln to pursue his doctorate.

 

He spent his childhood in Salem, OR, where he fell in love with the outdoors and agriculture. While attending school in Idaho, Chris met his wife, Jill. They have been married for almost seven years and have two beautiful and rambunctious daughters – Gracie and Allison. Outside of work, his hobbies and passions are outdoors. Chris is an avid hunter, fisherman and conservationist. He also loves raising game birds and waterfowl when city regulations permit it. Additionally, Chris received his private pilot’s license in 2015 and loves flying whenever he has an opportunity to do so.
