#RichardsonIs is a new campaign that we are launching to introduce you to some of the great people who work for our company.

This week, #RichardsonIs…Josefine, a Regional Sales Agronomist for Richardson Pioneer in Fairview, AB.

Josefine has been part of the Richardson team for three years, and it was her curiosity about agriculture that interested her in pursuing a career as an agronomist.

Josefine at Richardson’s Kelburn Farm.

Josefine works with Prairie farmers to help them grow healthy, resilient crops that go into food products, such as pasta, breads and cooking oil?

Just as how a farm goes through different stages throughout the year, so does an agronomists’ work. “I start with sampling the soil in the fall to evaluate its nutrient levels. During the winter months, I get to sit down with our farmers and together, we establish a plan for the summer growing season. The fun really begins in the spring with all the seeding and scouting I get to do. I love that my job allows me to work outside, scouting fields and discovering new weeds, diseases and insects”.

The farm is never too far from reach for Josefine as she also helps her husband out with his work on their family farm.
