"I took part in the Exploring Agriculture Internship. I was able focus a lot of my time on precision technology, while also getting exposure to other areas such as marketing, logistics, nutrient stewardship and more. I was able to fly drones and study aerial imagery, as well as become familiar with some of the software and other technologies available today. This is a great internship for anyone interested in the retail side of agriculture."

"My internship with GROWMARK FS was like no other. The networking opportunities I had throughout the summer, learning about fertilizers and how the company works was all both rewarding and beneficial! The projects that I was involved with ranged from forages to tomatoes, and anything in-between, helping me to grow my agronomic knowledge and helped me become a better steward for the industry. Having the opportunity to come back in the fall as a campus ambassador to help find interns for the upcoming summer was just the icing on the cake!"
