New Board Members Bring Agribusiness, Expertise to the Board

Madison, Wis. (May 10, 2019) – Midwestern BioAg (MBA) announces the appointment of two new Board members to the company’s Board of Directors.

Joining the Board are Jeff Stroburg, Southern States president and chief executive officer, and Tim Kroenke, retired Syngenta head of seed care. Both began serving on the Board effective May 9.

Stroburg and Kroenke will advise Midwestern BioAg, a leader in innovative fertilizer technology, as it continues to expand its product portfolio and reach, specifically TerraNu® Technology, into key U.S. markets.

“We are excited for these two exceptional individuals to join the MBA Board,” said Kevin Kimm, CEO of MBA. “Jeff and Tim bring deep experience in areas key to MBA’s existing operations and future growth strategy.”

Jeff Stroburg joins Midwestern BioAg with over 32 years of leadership experience in both the agriculture and petroleum industries. Stroburg will continue to lead Southern States as president and chief executive officer, which he assumed in May 2015. Prior to joining Southern States, Stroburg served as president and CEO of West Central Cooperative and later Renewable Energy Group for 16 years. Stroburg’s earlier leadership roles stem from Eastern Ag Region of Land O’ Lakes Cooperative, Countrymark Cooperative and Hamilton Farm Bureau Cooperative.

Tim Kroenke also brings more than 30 years of agriculture business experience in the United States, North America and globally to Midwestern BioAg, including senior business leadership roles in Syngenta and Dow AgroSciences. Kroenke has valuable business experience across a diverse range of agricultural and horticultural sectors including seeds/genetics and chemistry. Kroenke retired from Syngenta in November of 2016, and has since served on the advisory boards for AgTech Accelerator and Boragen.

About Midwestern BioAg

Midwestern BioAg works with both organic and conventional farms to improve crop yields, sustainably and profitably through a comprehensive, soil-centric, whole-farm management system. Its field-proven, proprietary products feed a balanced mineral diet to the soil and crop which stimulates soil life and enhances nutrient-use efficiency. Its flagship line of proprietary products, TerraNu®, was released in 2017 and delivers crop nutrients in an innovative carbon matrix—the TerraNu® Technology.

The Midwestern BioAg system also offers real benefits to communities and the planet: By keeping nutrients where they belong (in soil microbes and in plants, food and forage), the likelihood of excess nutrients ending up in waterways or generating greenhouse gases into the atmosphere is greatly reduced.
