Women’s connection to a life in agriculture never ceases to amaze me, and Jenny Mennenga is the perfect example of that.  Jenny grew up in Northwest Iowa on a traditional row crop and cattle farm operation.  With no intentions of going back home to the farm, she went to Iowa State University where she found her own love of agriculture through the study of agronomy and more specifically, the ability of genetically modified seeds to be able to make a real difference in the ability to feed a growing world.  After college, she moved to Illinois to pursue a career with Syngenta.
