Dr. Seth Naeve is a Soybean Agronomist with the University of Minnesota and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Agronomy and Plant Genetics. His effort is split between a soybean production/physiology research project and his soybean extension activities. Dr. Naeve’s research program focuses on development of novel strategies for the efficient production of high quality soybean. His research effort is split between analyzing genetic, environmental, and cultural effects on soybean seed quality (oil, protein, fatty acid, amino acid, and carbohydrate composition) and researching management strategies to maximize production efficiencies. Seth was raised on a corn and soybean farm in Northern Iowa, and received his bachelor’s degree in Biology and PhD in Agronomy (Crop Production and Physiology) from Iowa State University.
