Meet Makenna Mitchell, a third-year student of crop science at the University of Saskatchewan. She also works in crop research at the university.

Mitchell grew up in the agriculture industry, and is surrounded by family working in ag. Growing up, she worked at her family’s ag input company, which Mitchell says made it “second nature for her to pursue a career in agriculture.”

Outside of her studies, Michell works under Dr. Maryse Bourgault in the integrated agronomy program and at the Kernen Crop Research Farm at Saskatoon. She is involved in all stages of crop research — from seeding, to data collection, and harvest. Mitchell is involved in quantifying agronomic results in this program.

Following her crop science degree, Mitchell plans to pursue a master’s degree in either plant or soil sciences. Mitchell is interested in the integration of soil health with profitable cropping systems. In her future career, Mitchell would like to find solutions that manage crops and contribute to soil health.
