For the last six months of 2022, intern Adriel Junior worked for the MCIA Foundation Seed Services department. During that time, Adriel helped rogue soybeans, harvest barley and soybeans, and condition soybean seed. He also took in Minnesota Farmfest, the Minnesota State Fair, and attended classes while on the UMN campus.
The experience was made possible by MAST International in coordination with the UMN’s College of Food Agriculture and Natural Sciences. The MAST International program provides young people from around the world with hands-on experiences in U.S agriculture.
An excellent worker, Adriel has now returned to his home country of Brazil to take a job with the Bunge Corporation, a global agribusiness and food company.
