Jenny Cahoon - Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina
Regional Cotton Agronomist for the Mid Atlantic, Jenny Cahoon is from a small town in northeast North Carolina where agriculture is still a way a life for a lot of folks. In August 2005, Jenny began an undergraduate degree at North Carolina State University in Agriculture Extension Education. She spent her summers working for a crop consultant back home in Halifax County, and later worked for a professor on campus whose responsibilities included aquatic and non-cropland weed research. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree a semester early in December 2008, Jenny immediately began working on a Master of Crop Science under the advisement of Drs. Loren Fisher, David Jordan, and Keith Edmisten. For the next two years, she researched the effects of simulated drift of dicamba, glufosinate, and 2,4-D on cotton, peanut, soybean, and tobacco. Upon completion of her degree in the spring of 2011 she accepted an internship in central Louisiana working for a crop consultant and private contract researcher where she was responsible for scouting crops along with implementing and executing field trials. Jenny worked for the state of North Carolina as a regional agronomist in the Tidewater region before joining the Agronomic Services Team.
"ST 4946GLB2 is an outstanding variety for the Mid-Atlantic with proven yield performance over multiple seasons. Also having true double stacked technology with both GlyTol and LibertyLink traits, gives growers flexibility in their weed management program along with excellent yield potential."
