Internship with the Iowa Soybean Association: Adam Guy

September 8, 2017

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.”

On campus Adam has been heavily involved with the undergraduate Agronomy Club. He is currently serving as the club’s treasurer. In the past served as a CALS council representative and social chair. He has helped at popcorn and doughnut sales, 4-H experience agronomy and attending fun club social events.
