2017 January Research Updates for Ag Professionals


By Dave Nicolai, Coordinator for the Institute for Ag Professionals

Each year brings new crop production challenges. Keeping up with these new issues is a top priority for agricultural professionals. At the 2017 University of Minnesota Research Update for Ag Professionals, you will find research-based strategies to deal with today's changing pests, diseases, varieties, and nutrient and environmental recommendations. Presentations and discussions at the update will allow you to visit with experienced university researchers and offer you the opportunity to visit with colleagues to discuss topics of interest to you in your region. The 2017 Research Update Sessions are scheduled for these locations: Waseca, Kasson and Lamberton (Jan 3, 4 and 5 respectively) and Willmar, Morris and Crookston (Jan 10, 11 and 12 respectively). Registration by site is listed below.
