Ed Lounds has been in the ag chemical industry for 50 years. Ed was born and raised in Winter Haven, Florida where he worked his way through college working for Southern Citrus. He loved the people and the industry. His first job was with Wilson Toomer Fertilizer in 1968 where he worked for 8 years. Over the lifetime of his career he worked for Miller Chemical for 10 years, Stoller of Florida for 12 years, Brandt for 5 years and Tessenderlo Kerly for 12 years, rounding out an impressive career selling products to help better the industry. His retirement in 2018 was short lived. In his own words, he said, “I cleaned the barn three times and fixed all the facets he could.” He realized he missed the people and helping the industry. Today, like all the 50 previous years, he’s once again representing products he believes in to help the farmers, ranchers and growers get the most out of their crops.
