Headshot portrait of Joe Franks

Joe Franks

Joe joins the Advanced Agrilytics team as a precision agronomist in West/Northwest Illinois.  His passion for farming came at a young age.  Although not growing up on a farm, he spent a significant amount of time on a neighbor’s operation and later worked there for several years prior to college.  With a degree in Agronomy from Western Illinois University, Joe spent 15+ years in the retail ag business sector in various roles and the last 10 years focused in the seed and technology aspects of production agriculture.  As a 10+ year CCA and 4RNMS, the opportunity to join Advanced Agrilytics built upon his dedication to help identify and manage challenges within variable growing environments that result in higher yields with producers. Joe and his wife, Jolee, and two children live on their first-generation farm in Western Illinois raising and showing competitive club lambs. Their time away from the farm and showing livestock is most often spent camping with family and friends.
