Kok Hired as new Extension Conservation Tillage Specialist

Hans KokWashington State University and the University of Idaho have jointly filled the position of Extension Conservation Tillage Specialist. This position was formerly held by the late Roger Veseth. Hans Kok, a native of the Netherlands, started in mid-September. Hans received his Ph.D. from the University of Idaho in 1989, and worked at Kansas State Extension for eight years as Conservation Tillage Specialist. He just completed a six-year assignment with Monsanto, in Indianapolis and Memphis, also as conservation tillage specialist. Hans will be on the PNDSA board and will be involved in the January Direct Seed conference in Spokane. He also plans to build contacts with area farmers, commodity organizations, researchers, private industry and others actively involved in conservation tillage. "Having been out of the PNW for the last 14 years, there is a lot of catching up to do" according to Kok, "I notice quite an increase in conservation tillage compared to the late 80's." He is married to Kathy and has a 22-month-old son, Will. Hans will be housed at the University of Idaho. His contact information is hanskok@uidaho.edu, (208)885-5971.
