VERONA, Wis. – AgSource Laboratories is very proud to congratulate Chuck Bolte on being named the 2016 Wisconsin Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) of the Year! Bolte, who is from Deerbrook, Wis., works as a nutrient management planner (NMP) and oversees the GPS and NMP staff at AgSource. He has maintained CCA status for the past 15 years.
“Chuck is an exceptional team member. He gives 110 % effort to the clients and farms that he works with and to AgSource,” notes Steve Peterson, AgSource Laboratories Vice President, Laboratory Services. “His efforts don’t go unnoticed by the clients.”
Bolte uses his extensive knowledge of nutrient applications and crop production to help growers maximize yield, while also protecting the environment. Bolte constantly challenges growers to do better and to try new technologies.

He works with vegetable, dairy and cash grain farms throughout the state of Wisconsin. In addition, Bolte oversees nine AgSource field staff, as well as mentoring and training younger staff members.
When he’s not in the working, Bolte is active gardening, taking care of his orchard, hunting, and fishing.
