Seed Program Administrator
Office of the Indiana State Chemist
Don Robison has been in the seed business for over 30 years. From a family seed dealership to executive positions at large seed companies, he has filled almost every role available in the agricultural and lawn seed industry. Growing up on the family farm helped to instill a strong work ethic and a penchant for testing and research. The Robison family were early innovators into the no-till world, starting in the early 1970’s. Don and his dad Bob and brother Dave were equally as early into utilizing cover crops and cover crop research. In 2016 Don took on the role of Seed Administrator at the Office of Indiana State Chemist. This role includes the seed regulation, the Indiana State Seed Lab, microorganisms and hemp regulation. He currently sits on the boards for the Association of American Seed Control Officials (AASCO), Association of Official Seed Analysts (AOSA) and as an Ex-Officio Board Member of the Agribusiness Council of Indiana.
