Staying updated on Twitter makes relevant content more accessible and allows us to learn from and be exposed to diverse viewpoints. In addition to the current agronomists you are following on Twitter, it is important to follow up-and-coming agronomists as well as the more established agronomists.
Last year we provided our readers with a list of 8 agronomists to follow on Twitter. We even heard from our blog readers and Twitter followers about some of the ones we missed in our original list. We hope you considered following them too.
For 2017, we found seven more great Twitter accounts to check out:
