Anuvia Plant Nutrients announces that Jim Byrum is joining the company as director of government affairs. In his new position, Byrum will be responsible for interacting with policy leaders within government and NGOs about Anuvia and the opportunities presented by its innovative fertilizer technology, including SymTRX, Anuvia’s sustainable, enhanced-efficiency slow-release plant nutrient developed for the agricultural markets. 

“We welcome Jim to Anuvia and look forward to his valuable insight into public affairs,” says Anuvie CEO Amy Yoder. “His depth of experience in agricultural government affairs and his relationships with leaders within the food and agriculture industries will be a valuable asset to our company. Jim will help build awareness within government and the industry on how Anuvia’s technology can support efforts to reduce the environmental and carbon footprint of agriculture while at the same time increasing efficiencies on the farm.”   

Byrum has worked in public affairs and agricultural advocacy at the state, regional and national level for more than 30 years.

“In my new role with Anuvia, I’m excited to apply my experience working with government agencies and agricultural industry groups to advancing the company’s goals by impacting policy at key government agencies,” says Byrum. “Their plant nutrient technology not only helps farmers improve soil health, increase yields and reduce nutrient loss, it also provides the sustainable, profitable and environmentally friendly crop input products needed for today’s agriculture.”
