BASF hires two new technical field representatives to cover the West

BASF Agricultural Solutions has welcomed two new technical field representatives to its agronomic team. Both members have been assigned to regions of California and Arizona.

Jessica Salmer

Jessica Salmer will cover California’s Central Valley. She has eleven years of experience in the agricultural sector, five years of experience in agro-chemical development and six years of experience in product management and sales.

Before BASF, she was a marketing manager at Nutrient Ag Solutions. Jessica graduated with a master’s of science with an emphasis in entomology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

“I am excited to join BASF and be a part of an innovative, dedicated team in support of our agricultural community”, said Samler. “It’s an honor to work with some of the best people in our industry, continually innovate for our growers, and help them tackle the biggest job on earth.”

José Cabrera

Also joining the team is José Cabrera, who covers Southern California and Arizona. He is an agribusiness professional who was worked for 15 years in the vegetable seeds and crop protection industry. Prior to his role at BASF, he was a product manager at Helena Agri-Enterprises.

Jose graduated with a master’s and bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics and agribusiness from Louisiana State University and from Pan American Agriculture School in Zamorano, Honduras, with a degree in agronomy and crop science.

“Working with BASF has been a long-time career aspiration for me and I’m happy to say that it has exceeded my expectations from a company culture, professionalism, and broad product pipeline standpoint,” said Cabrera. “In my opinion, BASF truly focuses on creating chemistry, not only with technology solutions but also among its people.”
