Crop Production Services - Centreville, MD

Clay Larrimore, manager of Crop Production Services, grew up on the water of Chesapeake Bay. The last thing he wants to do is harm it, and he has taken to letting people know that.

“With the increasing urban pressures, we see the need to be more proactive with those not familiar with our business,” says Larrimore.

Frequent field scouting and precise environmentally-conscious recommendations help build farmer awareness. Major physical changes to the business include liquid bulk chemical and fertilizer dikes and closed pesticide handling systems. “Environmentalists aren’t all radicals,” says Larrimore. “Here, we are all environmentalists and our production practices prove it.”
