Guier Chemical & Fertilizer Inc. - Houstonia, MO

Barry Guier, who started Guier Chemical & Fertilizer, Inc. when he was fresh out of school, is proof that the agricultural chemical dealer industry is alive and well. Taking his training, love for the environment and family values helped Guier succeed in the business world.

“This [the environment] should never be left up to politicians,” says Guier. “It has to start with self-discipline, good common sense and foresight.”

Guier and his company are advocates for the education of local growers and know that the best way to protect the environment is by talking about it and showing others how to do their part. Everything Guier does in his business is related to service and teaching. “Farmers are like sponges,” he says, “they just soak up information.”
