Released Thursday, 5th March 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Along with corn, soybeans are a main cash crop in Iowa. Though most people only think of corn when they think of Iowa, many farmers depend on soybeans as a protein source for their livestock, and as a second crop to rotate with corn to benefit their soil health.

This episode, you will meet Jordan Spear of Corteva AgriScience, who has worked as a soybean researcher since his college internship. He will share how soybean researching and genetics has changed over time, and how that innovation benefits farmers and consumers.
You will also meet DeEtta Andersen, a high school science teacher at Center Point Urbana, and winner of Iowa’s Excellence in Teaching About Agriculture Award, as well as a National Excellence in Teaching About Agriculture Award. DeEtta is passionate about agriculture and student-lead learning, which you will hear clearly in this episode.
