Agronomic Field Services

Joe Hudyncia, section chief

Regional agronomists (RAs) provide on-site consulting services to help growers troubleshoot nutrient and nematode problems, establish appropriate agronomic sampling programs and implement management recommendations in a cost-effective and environmentally sound manner. Read RA success stories or an Informational Field Services brochure. Connect to the current RA map.

By maintaining communications between growers and the Division's scientific and laboratory staff, RAs ensure that the Division remains responsive to current problems.
