AGVISE Laboratories is proud to announce that Brent Jaenisch has joined the AGVISE team as an Agronomist. Brent provides sales and technical support to AGVISE customers throughout Minnesota, South Dakota, and the northern Corn Belt. You will soon see his contributions in AGVISE newsletters and seminars. Brent is based at the Benson, MN laboratory.
Brent is a Minnesota native and grew up on a diversified grain and livestock operation outside Maynard, MN. Brent took his passion for farming and agriculture to school, obtaining a degree in Agronomy from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, then a M.S. and Ph.D. in Agronomy from Kansas State University. Brent’s master’s degree research investigated wheat yield response to different fertilizer treatments and varying agronomic practices. His doctoral research evaluated wheat management practices in Kansas where he spent countless hours surveying wheat growers across Kansas and understanding the contribution of wheat yield components to wheat yield.
Brent enjoys interacting with agronomists and farmers, and has extensive experience leading and instructing research teams. Brent spent three summers of his undergraduate experience interning with CHS and Winfield in Minnesota, where he built lasting relationships with growers and retail agronomists. During his graduate school career, Brent trained, coordinated, and lead teams of new agronomists to complete field work and research tasks across the state of Kansas, which is no small feat!
Brent’s practical approach to agronomy, passion for teaching, and knack for building meaningful relationships make him an excellent addition to the AGVISE technical support team. We are excited to have him on the team and can’t wait for you to meet him.
