Internships

For Hannah Corey it doesn’t get much better than spending the summer before her senior year working for Anheuser-Busch making some of the best beer in the world.

As an Anheuser-Busch Agronomist Intern in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Corey is spending the summer working on the company’s barley production team.

“Here in Idaho, we grow the barley and turn it into malt for beer production,” said Corey. “Three out of every six pack of Budweiser’s are made with Idaho barley!”

Corey’s focused on three main tasks this summer: a soil health project, a barley production guide and SmartBarley grower surveys.

Adam Guy is a Senior in Agronomy with a minor in Agricultural Business. This summer, Adam worked for the Iowa Soybean Association located in Ankeny, Iowa. Adam has been working on collecting data for soybean cyst nematode, cover crops, row spacing and corn root worm fields studies.

“My role within the Iowa Soybean Association is working with the on-farm network to collect research data from on farm trials across the state of Iowa. Then I analyze the data collected and use it to correlate the results," Adam said. “I learned how to create detailed research trials and how to effectively collect, analyze, and correlate data. Then, use the data collected to provide valid research to benefit farmer’s operations to improve the quality and quantity of the crop produced.”
