What is an Agronomist?

Shawn Conley, WI State Soybean and Wheat Extension Specialist

Agronomists ROCK! As a member of the agricultural community, you probably already know this. But do all our high school and higher education students know this as well? Do they know what it would like to be an agronomist, and why we need agronomists in our future?

This video shows some of the activities that University of Wisconsin-Madison students Adam Gaspar and Marian Lund take part in as they prepare for agronomy related careers. Adam describes why agronomy is an exciting and fulfilling field of study.

This video was developed to create awareness of agronomy related career opportunities for high school and college students. If you would like to become an agronomy student at UW-Madison, or for more general agronomy related information, follow the links below the video on YouTube.
