Christie Apple is an agronomy and soil health specialist at Timac Agro USA. She is a self-proclaimed ‘soil nerd’ and loves everything to do with soil health and plant nutrition.  She works with clients, trains farmers and other agronomists, and in her free time, farms her own land.  She’s active in Farm Bureau, FFA, and 4-H.  She and her husband – also an agronomist – have five teenagers.  She enjoys her rose garden, playing the piano, singing in her truck, and spending time with her large family.
