Ten college students are joining the Insight FS team this summer to explore agricultural career opportunities as cooperative interns.
Agronomy Manager Ben Huber says while the program looks a little different this year, with the increase in virtual meetings and trainings, the Insight FS interns are already hitting fields, crop scouting and learning about new precision technologies.
"We are excited to have these intelligent, hard-working interns with us this year," Huber said. "We are proud to offer the internship program and give these students a look into what a career in agriculture can build to."
Each of the students are expected to present key learnings and project results at the end of their internships.
