Meet Blake Arnold, a Rising STAR Partner intern from Iowa State University. As a sophomore studying Agricultural Business, Blake thought the Rising STAR Partner program sounded like a great opportunity to begin a career in the seed industry.
Since his week of training at AgReliant Genetics headquarters in Westfield, Indiana, Blake has been prospecting growers and learning from current LG Seeds employees.
“I really enjoy this position since my hours are very flexible,” says Blake. “It’s almost like I’m my own boss already! I look forward to meeting more farmers in my area, learning about their operations, and introducing them to LG Seeds.”
After obtaining his degree from Iowa State, Blake plans to return to the family farm and become an LG Seeds STAR Partner.
