Corn stalks towered over Ashley Jacque and a group of first-year agronomy students at Chippewa Valley Technical College as they parted their way 40 yards into the cornfield to assess growing cobs.

Jacque, 23, a second-year agronomy management student from Thorp, was in their shoes last year. Now she leads new students as they learn how to determine yields during the program’s two-day Tour de Crops.
