While many of the leading experts in the agricultural industry have been trained at various levels of secondary education, Kip Cullers has become the preeminent voice in the soybean genetics field after only receiving his high school diploma, Time reported.
The Southwest Missouri resident has set world records in soybean production several times, including his most recent output of 160.6 bushels per acre of the crop, more than four times the national average, according to the news source.
Cullers has enacted a partnership with another giant of the agricultural industry, John Deere, as the farm equipment company has helped the Missouri native achieve the record number of crops due to the use of exceptional machinery, reported Time.
John Deere has chosen to work with Cullers in an attempt to make great strides in both solving hunger problems that the world faces and farming with the most efficiency to limit the impact that agriculture has on the earth, the news source reported.
Many efficient models of farm equipment are available from John Deere, including new models of the STS series of grain harvesting machines, maximizing the yield for any crop cycle, according to the company website.
