At the 2018 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 2018 Research Update Sessions are scheduled for these locations: Waseca, Rochester and Lamberton (Jan 2, 3 and 4 respectively) and Morris, Willmar, and Crookston (Jan 9, 10 and 11 respectively).
