This is the introductory page for a set of materials about agronomy as a career. A general description of the work done by agronomists is first provided. In the rest of the resource, students can read narratives about a field sales agronomist and a crop production specialist. Each of these agronomists has provided a challenge activity for students. In one activity, students make brochures and suggest reasons why their sales company is better than a competitor's. Another activity asks students to research specific questions about the variety of seed types available and their benefits to farmers. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
