John Bergman grew up in a small family greenhouse business in southern Minnesota. This is where he developed his passion for the horticultural industry. After completing Horticultural school, John and his wife operated their family business for several years.
John has been a grower manager for over 30 years. He was been employed by some of the largest innovative breeding companies in North America. He has extensive experience growing a broad range of crops in a wide range of greenhouse and field environments. John developed his strong problems solving skills growing ornamental crops through the entire crop production phases, with experience in seed germination, cutting propagation, elite stock maintenance, and finishing crops in both greenhouse and field. John has learned to operate in the production and R&D environments to meet and exceed his customer expectations.
John as a Grower Advisor is looking to use his growing experience to partner with the Berger customers to help them grow high quality crops profitably.
