JL Agronomics provides a high level of service and value to growers. We focus on three areas: strong, independent agronomic consulting, custom planting/harvesting and helping you be First in Your Field with the Thunder Seed Canada line of soybean and corn genetics.
JL Agronomics Ltd. is owned and operated by Justin Lavallee of Portage la Prairie. Justin was born and raised in the Portage la Prairie area. He graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1997 with a diploma in agriculture. He began his agronomy career with Munro Farm Supplies. In 1999 he joined Jonair where he continued to hone his agronomy skills and building solid relationships with growers. Justin started JL Agronomics in the fall of 2010. As an independent consultant, he was able to help key growers in every aspect of their crop production including the use of variable rate technology.
As the business grew, Justin was seeing the need for an extra set of hands. In March of 2012 he hired David Chappellaz and then in October 2015, as business continued to grow, Jackie Dudgeon was added to the team. Jackie grew up in Morden and her dad runs a grain farm near Darlingford, MB. She graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Diploma in Agriculture in the spring on 2012. She then completed her Certified Crop Science Consultant certificate through the University of Saskatchewan in the winter of 2016. After graduation from the U of M Jackie worked for 4 years at DuPont Crop Science as a Grower Specialist for Eastern Manitoba.
In 2016 and early 2017 there was some changes to our team. In the fall of 2016 Breanne Rey became a full time employee at JL Agronomics. She grew up in St. Claude and attended Olds College in Alberta where she completed her Ag diploma and in the fall of 2017 is going back to school to complete her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and one day is hoping to obtain her CCA. In early 2017, Dave was offered a great opportunity to become the provincial agronomist for Thunder Seed, we are sad to see him go but excited that we will still be able to work closely with him.
JL Agronomics is also very excited to announce that we will be opening a new site at St. Francois Xavier that will be operational for spring of 2018. We are looking forward to providing our customers with the same exceptional customer service as our Portage La Prairie location and be able to serve a larger geographical area.
JL Agronomics provides a high level of service & value to growers through three main focus areas. Strong, reliable customer service, custom planting/harvesting as well as offering you some of the best soybean, corn and sunflower genetics on the market. Let us be First in Your field with Thunder Seed Canada.
