Application Form

For New Detasselers and Detasselers Coming to Us From Other Companies:   Our goal is have notifications sent out to you on April 1st to let you know whether or not you’re on the crew for this year.   If applying after April 1st, we’ll send out additional notifications as spots open up.  If accepted, your notification will include information about attending an orientation meeting (you’ll have some different times to choose from), and you will need to provide documentation at that time proving that you are eligible to work in the United States (Social Security card, etc.).


For Returning NATS Detasselers:   Please fill out a new application for each season you want to detassel.  We will be sending you a notification letter around April 1st  that will require your response.  Specifically, you will be asked to send in parental permission forms that the various seed corn companies require.  YOUR APPLICATION IS NOT CONSIDERED COMPLETE UNTIL WE RECEIVE THAT INFORMATION BY RETURN MAIL.


Please fill out the application only once!  Using correct punctuation, capitalization, and filling it out thoroughly helps your application stay competitive against other applicants!
