Tony Moellers, 2017 Iowa State University graduate with a double major in Agronomy and Seed Science and minor in Agricultural Business, is a Territory Manager for Mycogen Seeds, which is the retail-focused seed brand of Corteva. He manages the Mycogen corn and soybean business for 10 counties in Northwest Iowa.
