Profile Products’ vice president of Florikan® Brian Patterson was elected to serve as 2022-23 chairman of the Florida Fertilizer & Agrichemical Association (FFAA) board of directors. Elected at the association’s 90th annual meeting, Patterson will serve a one-year term on the 15-member board.
FFAA is an organization dedicated to educating about and encouraging the responsible use of fertilizers and pesticides in Florida. Over the years, FFAA’s primary focus has shifted from research to lobbying for science-based fertilizer and agrichemical regulations. Today, FFAA represents fertilizer and limestone distributors, and agrichemical and ag biotech manufacturers.
The FFAA has become an essential organization for Florida’s agricultural input producers and distributors. Patterson’s dedication to the organization and agriculture in Florida have shown through over his 10 years of active membership to the FFAA.
“It’s more important than ever before to be cognizant of the supply chain and do everything we can as board members to ensure Florida is producing safe and affordable food,” Patterson said.
Patterson joins the following additional elected FFAA Officers to one-year terms; Eric Johnson as Vice Chairman and Rhonda Trimble as Secretary/Treasurer.
Florikan was recently acquired by Profile® Products, which will further expand the company’s global footprint. Florikan is a leading manufacturer, blender and distributor of controlled release fertilizer to high-value ornamental horticulture, agriculture, golf, turf and professional landscape markets throughout the world.
The Florikan line will also join HydraFiber® advanced substrate and Sunterra peat to expand Profile’s global footprint by giving greenhouse and nursery operations, as well as blenders, a single source of primary crop production inputs.
