I have no idea how much of the Thanksgiving story that I learned in elementary school is factual. I assumed that the whole thing about Squanto teaching the Pilgrims to fertilize corn with fish was a bunch of bunk, but Wikipedia says that it’s pretty much true. We’ve come a long way from the kind of subsistence agriculture that got our country started. Farming these days is far more science than art. Crop Quest is a perfect example. They’re a Dodge City, KS based “innovation-driven leader in crop consulting and agricultural production management and solutions with a clear focus on [their] customers’ production goals and budgets.” In a weird way, they’re kind of like the modern day Squanto.
You’re probably wondering what kind of services an agricultural consulting company provides. Crop Quest offers Soil Sampling, Fertilizer Recommendations, Regular Field Checks, Field Scouting, Ag-Chemical Recommendations, and Detailed Field Reports. This isn’t just taking scientific research and spitting it back to farmers in a more digestible way. Crop Quest actually has “local expertise on a truly national scale.” They do this by having a team of Agronomists on the ground across the Plains region. The Agronomist positions are entry level jobs for undergraduates with an Agriculture related major (agronomy, crop, soil, weed management, ag business, or other ag science course work). Right now there’s one posting on Crop Quest’s Jobs page for Agronomists across all locations along with specific postings in Ulysses, KS and Front Range, CO.
