Eddie Ehrhardt was raised outside of the rural community of Emington, IL. In his younger years, he was
very active in numerous FFA contests as well as following the club lamb show circuit. As he grew up, he
enjoyed competing at the state and national levels of the show circuit. In 2010, he won the State FFA
proficiency award in Diversified Livestock Production (entrepreneurial). In 2013, he graduated from
Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Business. Eddie now resides in Dwight, IL
with his wife, Rachel, and daughter Harper where they continue to raise livestock. In Eddie’s free time,
he enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with his family.
Eddie started his full-time career in Ag Retail within the FS system as a salesman. He quickly moved up
to a management role, where he helped improve the efficiency and grow the sales of the facility he was
managing. Eddie was very successful in the FS system and happily spent nearly a decade working there.
During these years, he developed many relationships by making recommendations on seed, crop
protection products, and crop nutrient programs – as well as managing the day-to-day operations of the
location. Eddie looks back on this time fondly and appreciates the relationships he was able to create.
Achieving the CCA and CCS certifications were two milestones for him that demonstrate he has a
commitment to make a positive difference in his client's business. Eddie is driven by helping others
succeed and takes pride in helping his customers find the right products to fit their acres and individual
needs. He gets a lot of personal satisfaction by putting together specific recommendations for
customers and then watching the results of those decisions unfold as the year progresses.
Eddie is very goal oriented, frequently asking himself “How can this be better?” He wants to bring his
customers only the very best available products on the market that lead to positive ROI for the
customers he works with.
As Eddie looked at the changing landscape of agriculture and the changing needs of his customers, he
became very intrigued with the portfolio of solutions that Integrated Seed Solutions provided. He was
not only interested in the seed options, but also very interested in the Amplify High Yield Management
system. Eddie sees the potential for a tremendous fit with his customers desire for higher Return on
Investment and the High Yield Management system that Amplify provides. Thus, his career at Integrated
Seed Solutions was born.
