GroundBreakers series: Jeremy Meiners
Jeremy Meiners might have been comfortable in lecture halls and research labs for the rest of his career – he obtained his PhD at Washington University at a time when he says many of its graduates were going into full-time academia careers. But Meiners pivoted and combined his passions of farming and design and joined AGREM, his father’s software company.
Now, Meiners not only applies those passions day-to-day at AGREM, but also works hands-on with farmers in the field and furthers his knowledge on best practices and conservation. He has been part of initiatives such as webinars and drainage demonstrations in an effort to boost contractors’ know-how – and enhance his own understandings.
