John Leif, CCA, is a Field Agronomy Manager for AgroLiquid. In addition to his extensive crop nutrient knowledge, he has conducted research on crop protection products, natural resource and conservation issues, and soil health. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Nebraska in agronomy and field crop weed control.
