| Leave a comment
By Dave Nicolai, Coordinator for the Institute for Ag Professionals

Face the 2013 crop year armed with the latest University of Minnesota research. Each year brings new crop production challenges. As an agricultural professional, keeping up with these new issues is a top priority. At the 2013 University of Minnesota Research Update for Ag Professionals, you will find research-based strategies to deal with today's pest, disease, variety, and nutrient 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. You will leave with research-based knowledge and field-tested solutions that will help you in the field for the year 2013.  Descriptions of the research update presentations can be viewed at the Institute for Ag Professionals web site.
