1987 Master Agronomist Lee Tyler and Marvin Agan

Marvin Agan

Marvn Agan of Clinton, Oklahoma Custer County, entered farming full time in 1963.  Marvin, his wife Linda, and their two sons, Derrick and Ryan farm in the Custer City area.  Their operation includes wheat and stocker cattle and a small sheep enterprise.  Recently Marvin has expanded his business enterprises to include a seed and feed dealership and small equipment merchandising operation.

Mr. Agan has served as a member of the Custer County Extension Program Planning Committee and as County Advisory Committeeman with the Custer County Farmers Home Administration Office.  In addition, Marvin and his Dad have been very active cooperators with the Custer County Soil Conservation District. They were among the early participants in residue management. Marvin has supported extension and research work in agriculture. For several years he supplied land and equipment for a wheat variety test plot and in 1984 agreed to furnish 30 acres of his wheat land to become the home site for the department's West Central Wheat Demonstration Center. Marvin has been an excellent cooperator at the Center, frequently interrupting his own farming operation to move needed machinery to the Center for tillage operations,

Marvin Again is on of Oklahoma's most progressive farmers.  He credits much of his success to a well designed, regular, soil testing program coupled with a good fertility program.  He represents the innovative, precision oriented group of farmers upon whom our future depends.
