Gar Tootelian Inc. is one of the nation’s oldest independent crop-care retailers. It is third generation family owned/operated and attributes much of its success to its commitment to actively promote agriculture literacy and environmental awareness throughout its roughly 5,500 square mile daily-delivery area. As recipient of the 2016 ARA Retailer of the Year and the 2015 Environmental Respect, Ambassador of Respect for North America recipient, GAR’s staff, which includes 40 Pest Control Advisors, pride themselves in bringing cutting edge advice, products and services on over 300 crops to 1,500 San Joaquin Valley “Specialty Crop” growers. A $10 million site renovation, and 10-acre expansion, was completed in 2016 transforming their old and tired single location into a truly world-class facility. However, in August 2017, a fire decimated their shop, parts and fabrication warehouses requiring GAR to start anew the rebuilding process which it hopes to have fully completed in the 4th quarter of 2018.
