Hamilton County Farmers, Meet Agoro Carbon Agronomist Alex Fiock

Local agronomist Alex Fiock has joined Agoro Carbon Alliance, a global business created for farmers and ranchers to earn additional revenue through changes to farming and ranching practices. Fiock will be serving the Hamilton County community offering insight on climate-smart agriculture practices.

Fiock, operating in northern and central Indiana, specializes in helping farmers and ranchers understand and adopt soil health promoting practices while adding additional revenue to their bottom line. He’s also passionate about being a farmer and broadening his understanding of agriculture, calling himself an “agvocate.”

“Hamilton County farmers have a unique opportunity to preserve soil health for future generations while earning additional revenue on the side,” said Fiock. “I look forward to working within our community and helping farmers and ranchers understand the benefits Agoro Carbon offers, our competitive advantages, and ways operators can further benefit from our programs.”

Prior to joining Agoro Carbon, Fiock served as a field manager for the National Corn Growers Association and district sales manager for Great Lakes Hybrid. Fiock earned his bachelor’s in natural resources and agronomy from Purdue University.
