Reading Time: < 1 minute

This week, Kevin Cavanaugh, Director of Research for Beck’s Hybrids is on the Ag+Bio+Science Podcast. Kevin’s first introduction to corn breeding was with detasseling. His labor of love turned into a full-time career after he earned a Ph.D. in plant breeding from Purdue University. No matter what, he knew he wanted to be involved in ag—plant breeding was a fortunate find that combined his interest in science + math. After graduating, he joined Beck’s Hybrids + has been there 25 years since.
