My MaxYield Internship: Jared Wellik

20140723_maxyield_514Meet Jared Wellik, MaxYield’s Crop Scout Intern

What are some of your responsibilities a crop scout intern?
My main responsibilities are to crop scout and soil sample fields of MaxYield clients. After scouting a farmer’s field, I give them a report on anything that I may find. I have also been able to deliver products to clients.

What has been the most challenging part about your internship?
The biggest challenge of my internship has been learning different crop protection strategies to control weeds and pests.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?
I am looking forward to meeting new people and to continue to learn more about the agricultural industry.

 

What is a typical day for you as a crop scout intern?
Every day is different. Some days I could be soil sampling, delivering chemicals, scouting fields or meeting with clients. I really enjoy that each day is different, because it keeps me on my feet.

 How has MaxYield expanded your view on the agricultural industry?
Before interning at MaxYield I didn’t know how much went into the agricultural industry from a cooperative’s prospective. Everything from feed, seed, fertilizer and fuel there is a lot that MaxYield does to keep their clients running their operations efficiently.
