At the beginning of November, ISU agronomy students attended the Students of Agronomy, Soils, and Environmental Sciences (SASES) American Society of Agronomy International Annual Meeting. SASES is the undergraduate program for the American Society of Agronomy. "SASES brings students together throughout the year at the Annual Meeting, spring meeting, and contests such as crops and soil judging.

The Iowa State Crops Team recently competed at a contest hosted by the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture. The team found great success, placing 1st overall in the 4-year division. On the championship team were agronomy students; Rachel Casey, Jenna Cowen, and Benjamin Kolbe. Rachel placed 3rd, Jenna placed 4th, and Benjamin placed 5th as individuals. Alternate, Alyssa Swehla also did very well at the competition.

Chase Krug, a sophomore from Marion, Iowa is one of the Department of Agronomy's peer mentors. 

Shannon Rauter, senior in agronomy and global resource systems, spent her summer in Mexico City in a Market Analysis position as an intern with the Global Trading Analytics Team of Cargill Agricultural Supply Chain North America.

Shannon is originally from New Jersey and decided to come to Iowa State specifically because of the agronomy program and because she received the Agronomy Academic Fellowship. Shannon toured a variety of land-grant universities and found Iowa State to have the strongest program, most welcoming environment, and the best scholarships.

Since Shannon interned with Cargill at a grain elevator in Ohio in 2018, Cargill helped her find an internship with a good fir that would help fill her international internship requirement.
