Workers will perform duties as instructed and assigned by their supervisor. The worker will walk down the aisles between the plants in the corn fields to detassel seed corn and remove rogue plants, weeds, and volunteer corn plants from seed corn production fields. The worker may perform additional field and seed mill duties to include receiving and sorting green corn, loading and unloading corn into dryer bins, shelling corn, loading out silage and cobbs, and operating, cleaning, and storing the equipment associated therewith.
