CNI General Manager to take home the grand prize

SHELTON, CT USA – (February 23, 2016) – International agriculture firm, H.J. Baker, is pleased to announce that Greg Slade, General Manager of CNI Minerals, was the winner of the “Keep Your Future Green” campaign sweepstakes drawing for the Precision Drone™ Scout Direct Kit.

The sweepstakes giveaway was a part of H.J. Baker subsidiary company Tiger-Sul’s campaign that ran in 2015 from July through the end of December. Slade’s win was the result of a random drawing of the hundreds of submissions to the giveaway.

The campaign was meant to highlight the benefits of applying Sulphur in the fall for maximizing crop yields, and how TIGER® Sulphur enhances nutrient use efficiency and potential crop response. The inclusion of TIGER Sulphur products in nutrient management program enhances crop utilization of other plant nutrients and promotes positive environmental stewardship.

“With the increasing number of growers turning to precision agriculture, it’s important that we as an industry find ways to respond to this,” said Don Cherry, President of the Crop Performance Division at H.J. Baker. “Giving away the drone in combination with the benefits of our family of sulphur bentonite products ensures that any grower can see the benefits of higher yields.”

As a leading agricultural innovator Tiger-Sul wanted its customers to experience the trend towards UAV’s in agriculture, so when they apply TIGER® MICRONUTRIENTS, TIGER® 90CR and TIGER XP™, the leading cutting edge products from Tiger-Sul, in their fall application, the can scout their fields in spring where they will discover fewer nutrient deficiencies and “see” more green in spring crops.
