The Advancing Ag series provides opportunities for crop producers, ag professionals, and others engaged in the agricultural industry to engage in a dialogue with University of Minnesota researchers and other specialists. Each Advancing Ag event brings together a diverse panel of researchers and specialists to address a crop production topic from multiple disciplines.
Advancing Ag events will be held on the fourth Wednesday of every month. The events are free to attend but participants must pre-register. Each session will be recorded and posted on YouTube at a later date. Certified crop advisors can self-apply for CEUs participating in each session.
