The goal of Helena Agri-Enterprises, LLC, has always been clear: to utilize our people, products, and knowledge to bring about the ultimate end result of our customer’s success. In other words, we care about whether you successfully grow a profitable crop each year.
Helena is one of the foremost agronomic solutions providers in the United States. In Florida, we have nine locations throughout the state to best serve our clients’ needs. Within a short drive from anywhere in Polk, Highlands, Hillsborough, and Hardee counties, you have three offices in Wauchula, Dundee, and Palmetto. If you’re a grower on the central east coast, our Mount Dora office is not far away. Operations in northern areas can depend on our Alachua location, and down south you can count on the team at Fort Pierce, Immokalee, Belle Glade, and Florida City. At these locations, we have 17 experts who have a wealth of agricultural knowledge in crop protectants, fertilizer, seed, application services, precision ag services, and financial services, as well as our own line of adjuvants, crop protection products, fertilizers, crop production products, and seed treatments.
Our team is dedicated to helping our people in the agriculture industry find the right source rate, time, and placement, so they can not only save on their bottom line but also achieve enhanced environmental sustainability. We know their goals: grow food safely, manage the land sustainably to protect and preserve our environment for future generations, and sell that food— hopefully— for a profit. For example, one of our branch managers at our Dundee location, Hunter Prescott, is a sixth generation Florida cracker and has been in the citrus and cattle industry for as long as he’s been alive. In October, he’ll be with Helena in Florida for eight years! Our team is composed of people just like Hunter, and Hunter understands the problems you face because he lives those same challenges in the field daily.
Each month in Central Florida Ag News, we’ll discuss the challenges you face in the field and see what knowledge we can offer to help you grow your agri-business. Thanks for reading along with us, and should you need any assistance, we’re here to support you.
