Winter Annual Oilseeds: Virtual Field Day #2

Session Two: Food Science and End Use Applications; Cooking Demo with Beth Dooley

Date: Tuesday, June 2nd, 12:30 – 2PM CDT

AURI and the University of Minnesota Forever Green Initiative are hosting a series of interactive webinars highlighting new winter-hardy annual oilseed research and development.

Winter camelina (Camelina sativa) and pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) are new winter hardy annual oilseeds in research and development as cash cover crops that protect soil and water while also providing economic benefits to farmers in the Upper Midwest.

Register for this second in a series of three webinars on these new cash cover crops in research and development by UMN Forever Green Initiative.

This webinar will provide a 40 minute overview on food science and end use research underway at the University of Minnesota and AURI. Culinary professional, Beth Dooley, will conclude the presentation sessions with a short cooking demonstration using winter camelina oil. The presentations will be followed by a 30 minute interactive question and answer session with a team of UMN and AURI experts.
