Jordan Seger named director of ISDA’s Division of Soil Conservation

Jordan Seger has been named the new director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture Division of Soil Conservation.

Seger, 26, has been a program manager in Agricultural and Environmental Affairs for the Soils division since April of 2012. He worked for a year with ISDA field staff prior to that. He attended Indiana University, from where he was graduated with a B.S. in Public Affairs. Seger grew up in the Jasper area and was involved with his family’s poultry operation prior to joining the department.
“I am very happy to announce Jordan’s appointment as director,” Director Gina Sheets said. “His service to the department, the agribusiness community and the state, have been invaluable. He brings a great combination of knowledge, understanding both the complexities of modern farming operation and the importance of environmental stewardship. He will continue to be a big part of the department’s effort to help landowners make sound conservation work in harmony with and toward a better business operation.”

Seger said he is happy to have the opportunity.
“I am excited to serve Indiana agriculture and the Administration in this new capacity, and I’m anxious to work more closely with the Ag industry and the ISDA field staff who work directly with farmers throughout the state,” he said. “Indiana is quickly becoming a national icon for conservation with local, state, and federal entities all working in partnership toward common environmental stewardship and profitable production goals. The ISDA – DSC will continue to work with landowners to ensure agriculture flourishes and Indiana farmers remain on the cutting edge with conservation technologies to help preserve our valuable resources.”

The ISDA Division of Soil Conservation works to increase agricultural economic benefits by assisting Indiana’s farmers in the application of advanced agronomic technologies while improving upon Indiana’s soil health and water quality.
