Dervin was born and raised on a dairy farm in south central Pennsylvania. He began his career in 1989 working in dairy nutrition and feed sales. In 1994, he became a District Manager for a regional seed company that was a distributor for the Garst Seed brand. Dervin joined the Garst team in 1999 and served as a District Manager for seven years.
In 2001, he took the national and state exams and became CCA certified by the American Society of Agronomy. Dervin was promoted to Agronomist for Garst in 2006. When Garst was acquired by Syngenta, Dervin resumed his role as agronomist under Syngenta brands and broadened his experience across both the seed and crop protection businesses in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regions.
Dervin’s primary focus has been on row crops, but since 2013, he has broadened his experience into the tree fruit and vegetable markets. His agronomy role has included troubleshooting, new product testing, product positioning, and the training of sales reps and retailers.
In 2016, Dervin joined PowerAG as Agronomist and continues to serve the crop protection business in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regions.
Chad grew up a native of Lancaster County and helped his Grandfather and Uncles around the farm. After graduating from high school, he worked for a local excavating company and enjoyed operating the heavy equipment.
In 2014 Chad began a career focused on agriculture. He sold seed, crop protection, and PowerAG products. Chad became a resource for his customers by sharing his in-field experience and knowledge of reliable agronomic programs. He is passionate about helping growers succeed and enjoys the challenge of increasing productivity while adding to a farmer’s overall return on investment.
In 2020 Chad joined the PowerAG team and is excited to work with both growers and retailers in support of our customers who feed the region and the world.
Originally from Lebanon County, Dan spent much of his childhood helping on local dairy and hog farms. He enjoyed finding ways to spend time working outside caring for animals. After graduating high school, he accepted a position with a local garage and farm dealership, where he ran the service truck, repairing farm and heavy equipment.
In 2010, Dan began a new venture with a former colleague, operating and growing an outdoor toy and recreational company. He traveled and worked to expand multiple customer bases. During this time, Dan joined NAFDMA (North American Farmers Direct Marketing Agency), and through this membership, he worked assisting growers with agritourism and marketing. Dan loved working with the farmers and their families to develop their businesses. From four-acre to 20,000-acre farms, Dan experienced the diversity of agriculture and the farming community.
Dan’s second great passion, the automotive world, became his complete focus in 2019—he joined a sales team with a large local car dealership.
Then, in 2023, he brought his evolving sales skills back into the agricultural arena and accepted a position as a sales representative for PowerAG. In his new role, he assists growers and retailers in increasing yields and profitability using PowerAG products. PowerAG’s commitment to sharing God’s love allows Dan to form fundamental and benevolent links with his customers. Dan sees his efforts to deliver leading-edge products that improve plant health and nutrient availability as a calling and a privilege.
