Fields of Innovation: Commercializing New Ag Opportunities

Date: December 7, 2020

Time: 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm, CT


The AURI Connects: Fields of Innovation platform focuses on creating a network of stakeholders across the value chain to support the commercialization of new and emerging crops in Minnesota and its border states. Launched in October 2020, initial programming has focused on Kernza® Perennial Grains, industrial hemp and more.

Join us at the 2020 Food | Ag | Ideas week for a discussion on what it takes to bring new and emerging crops to commercial markets. Hear from regional experts as they discuss their experiences. Topics will include an overview of the commercialization process, examples of new and emerging crops, and what actions stakeholders can take to support the food and ag value chain for these crops.

The conversation about new and emerging crops is happening now at the Fields of Innovation Facebook Group.
