Jerry Christenson was raised on a dairy and grain farm in west central Minnesota. After graduating with a B.S. degree in Agronomy from North Dakota State University, he began a 40-year career with American Crystal Sugar Company in Moorhead Minnesota. In his time in the sugarbeet industry, Jerry served in several different roles in the Agriculture department. His most enjoyable work centered around helping growers solve their production problems in their fields. Jerry is looking forward to using his agronomy experience and research plot activities to give information to the sales staff to help them sell Talc USA products. Jerry is going into his 3rd year of working for Talc USA.
