Into the Field: Developing Minnesota’s Future Ag Innovators (Webinar)

Date: April 30, 2021

Time: 12 pm – 1 pm, CT


Please join us on Friday, April 30th to learn how different agricultural education programs help develop the next generation of agriculture, food, and natural resources innovators.

Agricultural education is thriving in Minnesota with over 200 ag education programs and 300 ag educators serving 21,500 students in both rural and urban communities. As another academic year ends, students throughout the state are preparing for their next steps into careers focused on food innovation, crop and livestock production, renewable energy, coproduct and biobased product development, and more.

On April 30th, AURI Connects: Fields of Innovation welcomes ag educators and students to share their insights into why young people in Minnesota pursue careers in agriculture, the opportunities available to them, and how ag education programs help prepare Minnesota’s students to succeed in this diverse and rapidly evolving industry.

The conversation is ongoing at the Fields of Innovation Facebook Group.

AURI Connects: Fields of Innovation is a platform focused on bringing together Minnesota’s regional ag and food value chains to build capacity and successfully commercialize new and emerging crops. Events focus on highlighting promising new crops, examining market opportunities for emerging crops, and highlighting new technologies in existing crops.
