What are your future career plans?
I plan to finish my master's degree here at Mizzou in two years and continue on to work towards a Ph.D. in weed science. After completion of my education, I hope to work in the crop protection industry for a number of years doing field research. Eventually, I would love to go back home to my family farm and continue our farming operation as well as begin a private research and consulting firm.
The Crop, Soil and Pest Management graduate program area prepares students for careers in research, teaching, extension, production agriculture and related industries. Current research programs emphasize soil and nutrient management, forage management, cereal and oil seed crop production, alternative crops, cropping systems, weed management, integrated pest management and precision agriculture. Many degree programs are cross-disciplinary to give students a comprehensive view of the field.
