Senior in agronomy Tyler Flak had the opportunity to spend his summer as an agronomy intern at CNH Industrial.
Tyler spent his time both in the office and field. In the office, he worked on field data, background reading, and presentation. When he was in the field he collected data and helped setup experiments.
Tyler's favorite part of his internship was traveling to Kentucky to work on farm trials.
By being in agronomy classes at Iowa State, Tyler learned to have an open mind and was also exposed to different crop production, such as wheat, that he found to be very helpful. He also had experience from past internships working with sprayer application that provided him with a good background for being an agronomy intern.
"Being research focused in this internship has helped me better set-up my own trials back home and in the future will help set better plots for what I want to do research on," said Tyler.
