Excerpted from an AgriLife Today story by Susan Himes
The Department of Entomology and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service would like to welcome Dagan Teague as the newest integrated pest management in Floydada.
Teague started on January 2 and will serve Crosby and Floyd counties in District 2. Michael Clawson, AgriLife Extension district administrator, Lubbock, will be her supervisor.
“As the new IPM agent for Crosby and Floyd counties, Dagan will be a welcome addition to District 2,” Clawson said. “As an undergraduate at Texas A&M, Dagan worked for AgriLife Extension, and we’re excited to now welcome her to our team of agents.”
Teague has a bachelor’s degree in agriculture science with a minor in plant and soil science from Texas A&M University – Kingsville.
“I’m excited for this opportunity to work for AgriLife Extension and look forward to serving the people in my community,” Teague said. “I interned as a field scout down south and I loved being in the field looking for bugs – knowing it would help the growers at the end of the day. I also saw my boss Danielle Sekula, loving what she did, which inspired me to make this my career.”
