Listen: Developing seeds by day, Seminole wars re-enactor by night
Seed development helps farmers grow the right varieties in the right locations
Matt Griffin and I met during our time at the University of Florida: pretty much everyone in the college of agriculture knew everyone. While we never shared any of the same classes, we both were active in various student organizations and share a love for all things Florida agriculture.
Matt is a seed product development manager by day and a Seminole war re-enactor by night.
Our interview covers a wide variety of topics, like how Matt develops certain plant varieties for his customers, some Florida agriculture history, as well as why he portrays a Black Seminole Indian for various war reenactments.
This is a great one! Be sure to check out Matt at the links below, as well as another podcast interview he was on, The Millennial Salesman.
