Landmark Turf and Native Seed, a leading producer and supplier of high quality, value-added seeds for turf, reclamation, forage & cover crop use, announces the hire of John Patton as vice president of international sales.

Patton’s experience in the seed sales and distribution industry began while working on his family’s sod farm in Maryland. He then established his own landscaping business before beginning his seed career. Patton’s work experience in the industry includes Lofts Seed, Sunbelt Seeds, GreenTech, Seed Research of Oregon and, most recently, DLF PICKSEED USA, where he was the vice president of international sales. Patton graduated from Virginia Tech in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in agronomy.

“The experience John is bringing to Landmark will be invaluable for the business,” says John Brader, co-owner at Landmark Turf and Native Seed. “His relationships and knowledge of the seed industry will help to propel us into new markets. He’s going to make a great addition.”
