Reagan Noland has been named the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension's agronomist specializing in corn, soybeans and small grains like wheat, oats, barley and rye, according to an Aug. 8 UGA press release. These commodities have a combined Georgia farm gate value of almost $450 million.

Noland, a Texas native, is excited about working with other UGA Extension agents to conduct applied research on the UGA Tifton campus.

"It was appealing to come somewhere where Extension is very relevant," Noland said. "I want to help transfer the latest and most applicable research-based information to agents and growers who need it, and UGA Extension has an outstanding reputation in this area."

Noland's 80 percent Extension appointment means that he will spend the majority of his time meeting and talking with county agents about concerns within these specific commodities. The remaining 20 percent of Noland's time will be spent on research-related projects.

Noland holds a bachelor's degree in natural resource management from Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, a master's degree in agronomy from Texas A&M University and a doctorate in agronomy and agroecology from the University of Minnesota.
