Matt Carstens, President & CEO, Landus

Growing up on a farm in Iowa, it was instilled in me the importance of belonging to a farmer-owned cooperative. Being involved in our family’s corn, soybean, cattle, and hog business taught me the value of hard work. Working in a global agronomy, grain and dairy marketplace for my entire career confirms my belief that the success of the farmer is the nucleus of the agriculture industry.

Every morning when I wake up, I am energized by making farmers the center of our business, empowering our great employees and finding new ways to use technology to innovate our industry. The consumer market, and everyone along the supply chain, is demanding that agriculture share its story; I love being a part of an organization with a great story to tell.
