logan-haake-agronomyLogan Haake is the precision ag manager for Legacy Farmers Cooperative in Findlay, Ohio, which means he leads all precision planting, climate, grid sampling, field scouting, variable rate prescriptions, and other precision ag programs for Legacy Agronomy. He was also one of five crop specialists named this year as the first recipients of the new GROWMARK Endure 4R Advocate award.

Haake is a Certified Crop Adviser who has worked at Legacy for 11 years and also farms with his father. “Agriculture is very important to me on both ends and how we can remain proactive moving forward, both agronomically and environmentally,” he says, adding that it is especially important for his area in the Lake Erie basin. “We have to be environmentally sound, or we might lose the opportunity to be able to put the nutrients out to grow crops.”

Haake worked to get all five of Legacy’s agronomy locations 4R certified. “We ran a pilot on one of our locations and that locations was one of the first in northwest Ohio to get that certification,” he said.
