Today on the SWAT Agronomy Podcast Tim interviews Josh Messer, a certified crop advisor with AgIntel Agronomy Consulting. Josh grew up on a farm in North Dakota and started his career in ag retail.

I have written the introduction for this Agronomy Geeks episode three or four times, never quite being able to capture the right sense of what I’m trying to say.

Jenneth Johanson farms in an atypical growing region at Lac du Bonnet, Man., about 100 km northeast of Winnipeg.

There are several recurring themes among some of the most interesting people I cross paths with in agriculture. One of the most fun is that many of us never set out with a particular role or job in mind, but instead just rolled with the opportunities in front of us. The other is travel; not... Read More…
 
Claire Coombs’ first agronomy love might be soil, but teaching and extension work are likely a close second. Coombs is currently teaching at Algonquin College at Perth, Ont., in the Business Agriculture diploma program. Since March, it’s been an adventure in adaptability, as programs shifted from in-person to online nearly overnight. That change al…
 
Farms aren’t as mobile as we’d like sometimes, and that can mean leaving your home base to pursue work and life somewhere else. Taking on a new challenge outside of where you grew up has benefits though; for example, expanding your social circle, or diversifying professional opportunities. For Michelle Baker, with Millstone Crop Services, based... …
 
Sometimes taking on a new role is the challenge you need to really dig in to the next stage of your career, but sometimes returning to an earlier role is a great way to inject excitement and joy, while allowing for mentorship and growth too. Paul Hermans has held several different positions with Pioneer (and... Read More…
 
There’s a saying about decisions being only as good as the information they’re based on. The same could be said for agronomic decisions based on maps; the better the map, the better the decision. When Cory Willness, based at Naicam, Sask., got going in his agronomist role, most field maps (if they existed) were based... Read More…
 
With 20 years of teaching and research achieved, Don Flaten says it’s time to retire.

Flaten has also... Read More…
 
What happens when you put two past colleagues with a shared passion for agronomy extension, quizzes, and talking into headsets together, then hit record?

For anyone that’s ever done an agriculture diploma or degree, there’s likely a course that elicited groans when you’d see it on the schedule. For some it’s likely communications, for others maybe statistics, but for many it’s soil science. That was the case for Marla Riekman, which is ironic, given that she now serves as... Read More…
 
How do you know when it’s time to set up shop on your own? And in this day and age of rapidly evolving precision agriculture and technology, how does a boots-on-the-ground agronomist carve her niche?
