Students organize ag symposium
Graduate students at the University of Minnesota have organized a first-time Production Agriculture Symposium. The event is set for Thursday, February 13 on the St. Paul campus.
The theme is Enhancing Cropping System Performance Under Increased Environmental Variability.
The symposium seeks to bring together students, growers, crop consultants, and agricultural industry specialists to discuss agricultural production in hopes that, through knowledge sharing and discussion, new solutions to the world’s pressing food and environmental problems may be found.
In addition to presentations from five speakers who are leaders in their fields, there will be an afternoon student poster presentation, and for those that can’t make it in person, an online webinar.

The Production Agriculture Symposium is organized by graduate students at the University of Minnesota in the departments of horticulture; agronomy and plant genetics; water, soil, and climate; plant pathology; and ecology, evolution and behavior.
