Essay Question:

The role of the agronomist continues to evolve. Satellite imagery, drones, in-season tissue samples, variable rate seed and fertilizer applications, and many other new technologies have all transformed the face of agriculture. The role of the agronomist now encompasses more than just crop scouting and product recommendations.
