Peter Phillips, the publisher of Top Crop Manager magazine, has retired after more than 30 years in publishing. He began his career in Toronto, Ontario, in advertising sales representing various agricultural magazines from 1969 to 1971, prior to joining Agri-book Publishing Company of Hensall, Ontario, in 1977 as publisher.

He then purchased the publishing business of that company with Peter Darbishire in 1981. They expanded and developed the business, establishing Top Crop Manager, the country's leading agricultural publication in Canada as AIS Communications, an independent publishing house. Together they formed their publications group which has been purchased by Annex Printing & Publishing of Simcoe, Ontario.

Darbishire has assumed the role of publisher and editor.

Congratulations Peter Phillips!
