Andrew (Andy) Lenssen joined Iowa State University Oct. 1 as a soybean systems agronomist. He comes to Iowa State from Montana, where he was a research ecologist and lead scientist for USDA dryland research. Lenssen will be taking a systems approach as he addresses the primary issues of Iowa soybean producers in his research and programming.
“Collaborative studies gain more useful knowledge on complex interactions,” Lenssen said. “It takes a team to understand the interconnectedness of our actions, and field research to look at many of the bigger issues.”
