A summer with the Iowa Soybean Association - Adam Guy

October 20, 2017

Adam Guy is a Senior in Agronomy with a minor in Agricultural Business

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

Over the summer, Adam worked for the Iowa Soybean Association located in Ankeny, Iowa. When asked what his role is this summer he responded with “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 am excited to learn about 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.” So far, it sounds exactly like what he has been doing. Adam has been working on collecting data for soybean cyst nematode, cover crops, row spacing and corn rootworm fields studies.
