The Iowa Soybean Research Center (ISRC) at Iowa State University is pleased to announce Syngenta as its latest industry partner. In this role, Syngenta will have a seat on the ISRC’s industry advisory council, which advises the center on its research priorities.
“Syngenta is pleased to partner with the Iowa Soybean Research Center. We are very impressed with the breadth and importance of the projects presently being sponsored by the ISRC and look forward to seeing how their results improve and shape the productivity of the soybean industry,” said Stott Howard, Heartland Region crop protection field development head for Syngenta.

Jacob Perkins graduated in May of 2016 and he is now located in South Central Minnesota, where he is a Retail Sales Representative with Syngenta. His primary job duties are working with and through local retailers to help growers make the best agronomic and financial decisions for their operations regarding crop production products.
What Jacob likes most about his job is that he has the ability to help a grower from the planning stages of their crops, through the growing season if changes are needed, and then finally at the end of the year. He also likes to see what kind of ROI their products are providing for growers.
