    Head Grower at Foertmeyer & Sons Greenhouse Co. 

    Matt is a second generation grower and is now managing Foertmeyer and Sons Greenhouse. He attended the Ohio State University where he studied Crop Science with an emphasis on horticulture crops. After finishing his studies Ohio State, Matt worked in Germany at West Flowers.

    During his time in Germany, Matt learned and practiced the advanced horticulture procedures they use overseas. Matt moved back home ready to translate his knowledge of new technology to our facilities. Matt is now using his passion for technology to create smarter irrigation booms. With this new technology, Matt is hoping to cut down on water usage and more efficiently manage his facilities.
