Job Description

Agronomy Technician

Due to the nature of work in agriculture, work hours will be variable and may include overtime and weekends. Typical work schedule will result in 35-45 hours per week.

The hours fluctuate based on the field activities. From mid-April through mid-May the candidate would work OT most weeks. Then from mid-May through late July usually 35-40 hours per week. The hours pick up again during harvest from late July-late September.

We try to avoid Sundays as much as possible, but with agriculture can't always do so with weather. The past two years we worked one Sunday each year. If we wind up working a Sunday, I usually give contractors a day off during the week to make up for it.

Position Overview:

As an agronomy technician, you will work with the Research Agronomist to manage and maintain canola research plots in Montana. The private research trials that you manage will be used in the evaluation of specialty canola oil varieties with commercial potential. We are looking for highly ambitious, innovative, have desire for continuous learning and are able to quickly adapt to a rapidly evolving and highly motivated research team environment.

Job tasks:

You will assist in successful research trial management, which includes seeding, cultivating, spraying, harvesting, and data collection. You will operate and perform some maintenance on small plot equipment including seeders, sprayers, swathers, and combines. You will work with an interdisciplinary team including other research and support teams to organize resources effectively and to meet all business objectives.

Due to the nature of work in agriculture, work hours will be variable and may include overtime and weekends. Typical work schedule will result in 35-45 hours per week.
