Roger W. ElmoreExtension Corn Agronomist and Professor
Iowa State University
Roger W. Elmore is an Extension Corn Agronomist and Professor of Agronomy at the Iowa State University. Roger was born and raised on a grain livestock farm in north-central Illinois near Princeton. Following his undergraduate degree, he was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Malaysia where he worked with a crop diversification program in paddy rice-based cropping systems. He was associated with the University of Nebraska for 24 years and assigned to work largely with cultural practices for irrigated corn and soybean systems with some work with winter wheat and grain sorghum as well. In Iowa he concentrates on development of practical management information for corn growers. He expects to do his best to maintain or increase profitability of farming by seeking and demonstrating environmentally sound production practices. The ecosystem is too fragile to treat it with disrespect. Our livelihood and future depends on good environmental stewardship.
Roger and his wife Ann live in Story City, Iowa and have three children, two children in-law, and one grandson. Their daughter, son (in-law) and grandson live in the Denver area. Ann and Roger’s oldest son and his wife also live in Denver, and their youngest son is a senior at Roland-Story high school, Story City Iowa.
