Two agricultural professionals recently joined Vive Crop Protection to support Vive's unique precision chemistry products in the southern and northern U.S. marketplaces. 

George Huckabay joined Vive as the southern technical sales agronomist in November 2020. Huckabay was most recently with Nutrien Ag Solutions as a precision agronomist and also served as a Dyna-Gro agronomist working predominantly in cotton, corn and soybeans. He has extensive experience in peanut, cotton, sorghum and vegetable crop nutrition and crop protection needs. Huckabay holds a bachelor's degree in agronomy plant science and a master's in agronomy plant and soil science from Auburn University.

David Reif joined Vive in February 2021 as the northern technical sales agronomist. Reif holds a bachelor's degree in crop and soil sciences from Michigan State University. He comes to Vive from sales positions at Bayer CropScience and BASF, where he launched several products and grew sales within various territories. He has extensive experience working with corn, soybeans, dry beans and sugarbeets.

Dan Bihlmeyer, Vive’s vice president of sales and marketing says, “David and George will support our existing Vive Crop Protection sales team as we drive the development and adoption of our unique precision chemistry products. Growers who have used Vive products are exceptionally happy – with a 97 percent customer satisfaction rating. We’re working to introduce those products to distributors, retailers and growers throughout the country.”
