Johnson hired as field agronomist for Extension and Outreach

Advertisement

Mark S. Johnson joined Iowa State University Extension and Outreach as a field agronomist for north central Iowa on April 15.

Johnson, a certified professional agronomist and certified crop adviser, returns to his alma mater to serve as a member of the Iowa State Extension crops team.

“I enjoy agronomy, teaching agronomic concepts and providing farmers and agribusiness research-based information related to their agronomic issues,” Johnson said. “I’m personally rewarded every time I help someone find a solution or come closer to making a good agronomic decision.”

Johnson, of Ankeny, has a bachelor’s degree in agricultural education and a master’s degree in agronomy from Iowa State University. During his 30-year agronomy career in agribusinesses, he has worked frequently with members of the Iowa State Extension crops team, who are now his colleagues. While the soil continues to warm this spring, he will be traveling his region to introduce himself to farmers and agribusiness agronomists.

“I’m looking forward to meeting the farmers, learning about the issues they face and working with the agribusinesses,” he said.

Johnson can be reached by email at markjohn@iastate.edu or by phone at 515-979-9578.
