The company he founded, Midwest Bio-Systems, supplies the needs of the emerging sustainable agriculture market by providing compost windrow turners and other equipment, as well as the knowledge needed to economically implement sustainable, organic growing practices. He focuses on providing a framework that addresses the physical and biological aspects of soil fertility in addition to the chemical aspect.
