July Ag Adventure: Detasseling

Our last stop of the day on our July #AgAdventure was to learn about Corteva Agriscience.

Governor Pete Ricketts, Director Wellman and Assistant Director Breinig were able to have a Q&A session with a group of detasselers and thank them for their hard work.

Corteva invests $7 million thru their detasseling payroll back into Nebraska communities. Many of the students we chatted with today are using that money to save for college, buy school clothes and even open their first checking and savings accounts.
