An ag educator knows what it takes to attract young minds into an agricultural career.

The newest college recruiter for the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis is Juliana Krotz Kroeger, who majored in agricultural education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

The Kansas native whose family farmed along the Nebraska-Kansas border joined the NCTA staff in June as the assistant recruiting coordinator. She joins Emily Griffiths on the NCTA outreach team.

The Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture is dedicated to offering the best educational experience possible to our Aggie students.

Essential to our goal of ensuring student success in their classes and collegiate experience is a regular assessment and review of NCTA’s academic quality.

In 2017, we started a five-year rotation of program review through NCTA’s five academic divisions starting with NCTA’s Agronomy and Agricultural Mechanics Division.

Youngsters love bugs.  And, growing things. And, usually, playing in the dirt.

They can do all three and much more during the Third annual Agronomy Youth Field Day on Wednesday, August 8 in Curtis.

Nebraska Extension and the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture are organizing the event together.

“We have had a great turnout by youth the past two year, and lots of fun with hands-on learning activities,” said Brad Ramsdale, Ph.D., NCTA agronomy professor.
