A traditional summertime job around the Midwest for high school and college students won’t be offered in a section of northwest Iowa for the first time in decades. Siouxland Detasseling isn’t hiring students and teachers this year. Siouxland Detasseling C-E-O Ron Foster says seed corn companies that usually plant around 15-hundred acres in the area opted not to plant there this year.


Normally, the 62-year-old retired school teacher would be hiring 200 seasonal workers.


Siouxland Detasseling crews usually work fields north of Onawa to the Salix area.
