Byron Evers has been involved with soils research for over a decade, including a position in product development and research for Ohlde Seed Farms in Palmer, KS and a product evaluation scientist/research associate for Syngenta in Junction City, KS. Evers' thesis project "Water Use and Conservation of Bioenergy and Forage Crops in the Central Great Plains," involved studies and trials to test the feasibility of growing alternative crops under environmental stress, such as drought and heat. He also worked as a soil scientist for Bene Terra in Sheridan, WY determining soil suitability for subsurface irrigation through the analysis of soil chemical properties by horizon.
